Always, always..............and a sale!!

I just love the sentiment of this quote by Claude Monet...the full quote is "More than anything, I must have flowers, always, always."
I must have been thinking of Amy Westerman when I made this card, judging from the bright colors and mixed patterns...! The rose was stamped on watercolor paper, masked and stippled, misted, then overstamped with the flourish. The rose is watercolored with reinkers, then painted over with pearlescent watercolor paints. I trimmed around a few of the petals, and curled them up a bit for some dimension. (Gotta have dimension!) The right side of the dark pink panel was punched across with a corner punch.

All stamps are from Impression Obsession - and by the way, they are having their annual BIG SALE this week - you can use the discount code 8SALE to get 25% off your whole order! There are also a bunch of clear sets marked down 25%, and the clearance section has been stocked up with stamps at 50% off! So head over there for some super great deals. You will not be disappointed!
