Live Happy with Picket Fence Studios for SSS IG Challenge

Have you heard about the Simon Says Stamp Instagram challenge?  They just started it last month, there's a theme each month, and you just create a card and post it to IG to be entered.  This month's theme is watercolor.

I thought the challenge would be the perfect reason to ink up this Botan Peony image from Picket Fence Studios.  Don't you love how big and bold and showy it is?

The image was stamped with Versafine, and then watercolored using Kuretake Gansai watercolors.  I actualy used only one color for the flower proper, but added additional layers of color to deepen and brighten it until I got the depth that I was looking for.

The sentiment is from Picket Fence Studio's Live Happy set.  It's actually a single stamp with a number of different sentiments.  I stamped and embossed the entire piece and then cut this one off to use here.

Thanks for stopping by!
