Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Hello!

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a card or project that says, "Hello!" I thought this pretty Arbor would be a welcoming sight to anyone coming to visit... I watercolored the image using reinkers, and used Marigold, Peach, and Citrus Crush Flower Soft to add dimension to the scene. The fence die is from Quickutz.I layered 2 Cover-a-Card stamps for my background - Large Paisley and Thick & Thin. The sentiment can be found here. Here's a closer look at the Flower Soft:
