watercolor "for you"




 
 I think I fell in love with purple when we were expecting our middle child - at the time my husband had to ask me not to buy anything else that was purple!  Well, that was 31 years ago . . . it must not have just been hormones, because I'm currently redecorating my studio in shades of purple . . . this simple layout allows the gorgeous peony to be the star of the show!
 
 






 

stamps:  papertrey ink
papers:  stampin' up, watercolor paper
dies:  papertrey ink, my favorite things
embellishments:  clear embossing powder - stampendous; watercolors - prang
