MOJO 130: Delightful Daphodils

Spring has hit in Phoenix and I couldn't be happier! The weather is breaking and it's beautiful outside. The next couple of months are why we live here. Of course, with the coming of Spring it reminds me of growing up back East on the countrysides of Pennsylvania. As a child, it was always fun to brush aside the leaves and see the flowers sprouting up through the ground. The flowers in the Abundant Hope set remind me of those spring days when the flowers began to bloom.

I stamped the floral image with Black StazOn because I initially intended to watercolor the flowers. But, it worked out that I could actually use my Markers. I definitely prefer the color you get from markers, so I was glad the image is such that I could use them.

I sat down and played with many color combinations....I usually don't have the patience for that, but it was actually pretty fun. So Saffron and Crushed Curry were the winners for the flowers and the stems are a combination of Certainly Celery, Old Olive and Always Artichoke.

I love how this turned out and the refreshed feeling of Spring that it gives me. Hope you like it too! TFL.
