Hello again!

I goofed up a little with my posts today, I should have posted this earlier and the other one tomorrow... Oh well, you get to see me twice! Aren't you all lucky!? LOL

I bought these pretty flower arrangements for my in-laws.
Of course I had to dress them up a little for the occasion.

I think I should apologize beforehand, because you will see a lot of watercolor now that I know it is really fun and so pretty! 
Heat embossing makes watercolor really easy, you can just brush over images without disturbing it. I started with Primerose Petals on the bottom, Summer Starfruit in the middle, then Gumball Green on top. I wish I took a picture before I tied them on the vases, you can barely see the green...

Isn't this pink Peep bunny just adorable!? I don't eat Peeps, but she was just too cute to walk away!

I have 90 lbs watercolor paper, and it warps when it gets too wet. So I die cut 3 more pieces with the Summer Starfruit cardstock and glue them on the back of the tags. I just ordered 140 lbs watercolor paper online, so hopefully that will hold more water. If you know a lot about watercolor, any advice would be much appreciated!
