Sweet Violets

Hello! Today I have used my Sweet Violets set from Flourishes. They grow wild here in my yard, one of the many things I love about living in the woods! I heat embossed my image before coloring with my copics. I softly sponged around the image while it was still in the die. It is raining here again so I've had to make do with an indoor photo today. Sure hoping all these April showers bring May flowers! ;0) List of challenges and supplies used are listed below. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop back tomorrow for the new Sweet Stop sketch. Have a great weekend!
