Sweeping and free, this set simply named Azalea is begging to be colored with reckless abandon. It could inspire an outrageous upsurge in your use of pink markers, colored pencils, and paint! Use the lush blooms of these images to let a friend know how much she is missed, or to say thanks to another who is just plain amazing! This 4" by 6" set was illustrated by hand with a whole lotta love by Marcella Hawley.
Can I just say I LOVE these Azaleas!! Oh my word...the detail in this set is exquisite, making these images a pure joy to color!! I stamped the Azalea Spray onto Cryogen White cardstock with Tuxedo Black (Memento) ink, colored them with Copics, cut them out, and burnished the back to give them a bit more depth and texture. I then layered it over Postcards From Paris II dp by Webster's Pages, added a sparkly diecut butterfly, some lace, sequins and rhinestones, and voila, a finished shabby chic and sparkly card.
Doesn't that flower just make you swoon? Don't wait to exhale, breathe in the beauty and hop on over to see the rest of the Bloom Brigade!
Tomorrow's set is sure to deliver a little dose of serenity. Need some? Check on back to see the Bloom Brigade and all its Zen-like creativity!
