Penny Black Scented Beauty

I am on a Zig Clean Color Brush Marker binge lately!! Along with that, I am so obsessed with Penny Black flowers probably because it is finally feeling like summer :)

I am trying to practice no-line watercoloring... I usually just use my Zigs without water because they blend like a dream but I am trying to push myself to do other techniques!  I always use Strathmore Bristol paper with my Zigs, I just find it the best with those markers.  I die cut my panel (Avery Elle Wonky Stitched die) and used my Misti to place the Slapstick Cling stamp at the angle I wanted. I used Antique Linen Distress ink and stamped it twice to see the definition of the roses better.  

This card is for my favourite aunt who is battling dementia her birthday is soon and she loves getting my cards in the mail, so this one is extra special to me. She is French Canadian so the sentiment is by a Quebec stamp company called Limecitron.

Thanks for taking the time!
