Yes - it is February in Australia where this challenge originates.
This beautiful stamp is from Simon Says Stamp called Sketched Flowers. I heat embossed the stamp on watercolor paper. I colored the image with a set of watercolors from Altenew Stamps. I wanted some of the flowers to be a lighter version of the pink and teal color. I achieved the lighter color by mixing the original watercolor with white gauche. I came up with the perfect color complement for my bright florals. I did add some light pink highlights to the bright pink flowers. I also colored some cardstock this same shade of light pink so I could stamp my sentiment on it.
I did a light blue wash to add color around the image. I die cut the image with a stitched rectangle. Matted it with black card stock and adhered to a white card base. The sentiment was added to card front with foam tape. Clear crystal drops were glued to the card front.
Here is a close up of the bright and lighter pink colored flowers. You can also see the crystal droplets.
