Happy Little Stamper April Watercolor Challenge...

Hi! I hope you are ready for the fresh new challenge at Happy Little Stampers.

This month we have an optional prompt for the HLS Watercolor Challenge.

I used the Fragrant Florals stamp and die set. The coloring was done using Zig markers. 

I ran the base through an old Tim Holtz Embossing Folder. The sentiment is from the Altenew On The Go Birthday stamp and die set.

Here is another look at the card.

I hope you liked my card. I look forward to your beautiful creations in the HLS gallery. Do visit the blog for some more inspiration by my teamies.

Entering this card in the following challenges:

The embossing folder is several years old, I found it while reorganizing my stuff. The Stamp is also about an year old.

I was inspired by the brick wall in the background.
