Petunia's in Love

This is an Inspiration Challenge week and here is this week's inspiration.


I used the colors from the photos for my card.


You all know that I have to practice my watercoloring, so I stamped Petunia's in Love with Jet Black Archival Ink on watercolor paper and colored her with watercolor. I fussy cut my Petunia out, but there is a matching die for this stamp if you are not a fussy cutting person.


The background is created with watercolor and the sentiment comes with Petunia.
