This beautiful new set called Azalea is a collection of blooms just waiting for you to add the perfect color! With so many shades this flower comes in the sky’s the limit! This 4" by 6" set was illustrated by hand with a whole lotta love by Marcella Hawley.
I stamped this image on cold press water color paper with VersaFine black ink and watercolored it with various brands of dye reinkers and a paint brush. I have a beautiful variety of azalea that has the most gorgeous shade of peachy orange blooms, so I wanted to recreate that on my card. This is such a beautiful image and so much fun to color!
I used a Spellbinders die Fleur de Lis Squares to mat my image that I trimmed into a square and nipped off the corners. The patterned papers are from the MME Mabel pad. I used some satin ribbon and rustic twine to add a bow. I added the sentiment cut with a circle punch and layered onto a hand cut banner.
