Handlettered quotes + Watercolor florals - Trio Series1

Hi Friends!

During my June end to August Vacation at India, squeezed a lot of ME time amidst of my Family business and office works, and practiced Handlettering and Watercoloring florals.

Must say, every day i look forward for the evening time, to let my soul speak.

My little one would accompany me by smooshing his paint palette on his drawing book :)

And most of all, my dad would sit and watch patiently how we both do!!

Gonna share 3 projects per post :)

Hope you all like it!!

Hi Friends!

Made this card today using IBS digi stamp - To Someone Special.

Must Say....Absolutely love at first sight...

Went for a no line coloring using Fabercastell polychromos and made a simple CAS card with few dewdrops as accents. Wanted to focus the beauty of this digi :)

Took print out on Canson watercolor paper, colored and cut down an inch lesser to fit A2 kraft card base.

Added few dewdrops as accents to finish off the card.

Hope you like it!!
