Pink, gold and a touch of purple!


Hi everyone, it's a gorgeous Spring day here. We've had lots of rain so the brown grass has greened up and the flowers are happy!

I love this Everything Flower stamp by Hero Arts, it makes such a good embossed resist for 
watercolouring.

The colours were inspired by this gorgeous moodboard at Scrapbook Boutique.
