This month is Build-A-Flower Daffodil.
This set comes in lots of outline and detailed solid images.  

First, I stamped the outline images in the background and stamped a frame with Geo Frame

Altenew-BAF-Daffodil-Virginia#1

I decided to stamp with Altenew's Watercolor Brush Markers.
I started on stamping with the outline and then with Brush Markers, I stamped the solid images.

In between each stamping, I spritzed some water as well to facilitate the movement of the watercolor.

It was a lot of fun to mix the colors with Watercolor Brush Markers.
Not only this is super easy, it also adds that artsy loose watercolor feel!

Oh, I do love daffodils. Such a happy, hopeful bloom. Always seems it's trumpeting it's presence when in springs from the ground. I also love that loose watercolor look juxtaposed against the precise stamped outline. Very artsy-fartsy looking.
