Where are the flowers?

It won't be long before spring has sprung in Texas. Hopefully the winter rains will give our beautiful bluebonnets the boost they need to flower this spring. If not, there are always stamps for coloring and sharing. Texana Designs has a new Bluebonnet Frame designed by Joyce Meyer. I decided to fill my frame with bluebonnets so I paper pieced the same bluebonnet twice and popped the middle one for a little dimension.

I have been playing with my favorite gel pens - Sakura Stardust Pens. I found instructions for blending the colors with a water pen. It's amazing what a little blending will do. And the mica stardust is simply stunning!

I used it here on a stamp from Holly Berry House. You can see the real deal at Stamp Salado. If you want me to show you how to blend the stardust pens, come make Easter Cards with us on April 8, 2012.
