Bloomin' Beautiful Get Well

Sometimes I am so slow to get it. It being a stamp set I love. I bought this set, Bloomin' Beautiful, in the eleventh hour of the last day I could order it. I have used it A LOT since then, mostly for Sympathy and Get Well cards. I have several pieces I have colored/painted waiting to be added to a card base too.

 I have been using an aqua painter and ink from the cover of my ink pads on all of them. I didn't like the aqua painters at first - too hard to control, too much water comes out. Well practice makes perfect or at least practice makes pretty darn good.

This particular card was made for a coworker who is recovery from back surgery.

Hopefully I will move past this season of sad and be using the Bloom and Blossom sentiments from this set soon.

Thanks for looking.
