Red, Red, Red!

Hi! Our challenge today for Flourishes l.c. was to use the colour red. I don’t use red much so it really was a challenge!

I actually had to look through quite a few paper pads to find one with some red in it! Eventually I found one by American Crafts. I used some Gansai Tambi paints to watercolour this image from the Year of Flowers 2 set by Flourishes. The sentiment is one from a dollar store set of preprinted sentiments on vellum, it’s surprising how nice and thick the vellum was. The die cut hearts cover up the adhesive since I don’t find vellum adhesives work very well.

I hope you enjoy your hopping! Off you go!

Hi! I’m a disabled SAHM of three wonderful boys. Married since 1997 to Tim. I love crafts, creating art, sewing, needlework, making jewelry, reading, watching movies and snuggling with my fat tabby cat, Jesse. My boys are all on the autism spectrum so it’s a chaotic but fun life. I live in a small town north-east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It’s in the middle of corn fields and horse farms while still feeling like a suburb.
