Hollyhocks


I made this card in panic when I discovered my Penny Black stamp for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge was retired but then realised it wouldn't work for Spring Flowers Holly Hocks are Summer ones.
I originally brought this stamp because I saw a card at the Glitter Pot and wanted to try it out that way but I wish now I photo the card because I've only got vague picture in my head.
For a change and because everyone is talking about watercolour I've used watercolour pencils I've now put them away and I'll stick to my Polychromos.
The papers are Echo Park and I chose it for the yellow bricks to match my Hollyhock. Keeping with the watercolour theme I used the watercolour set from Stampin Up for the background and the dots.
The thanks die is from Simon Say Stamp.
Well I've got the AA route planner and Tom Tom at the ready I plan to be at the Lily of Valley Birthday this morning.

  13. Love this card, Debby. It reminds of how we used to make hollyhock dolls with these flowers when I was a little girl. They seemed to be the only flower that grew in our yard in Montana (USA).
