BLOOM



I used Neo II Watersoluable crayons for the background, and then used a distressed ink pad to add some texture, then stamped the words over with distressed ink. Borders from Nancy Baumiller, kaleidoscope corner from my kaleidoscope collection, hat from Becky F, Boots from Suzee Que, girl was from an old magazine, colored in, roses from magazine. Have a nice evening!
