Avery Elle Spring Release Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Avery Elle Spring release blog hop!


The new Spring collection is just awesome and I know you're going to love it so much! Today I'm showcasing a gorgeous new floral set: Spring Bouquet and I really like this one becase it features Lilies, which are probably my favorite flowers :)

You can find lilies in an amazing range of colours and I wanted to try more than one combination so I used Clean Color Real Brush markers to color them and I made two different cards.

For my first card, I barely colored the lilies but I added a lot of color to the background to make them pop up against it. I used Distress inks and my blending tool to create it.




On my second card I went more detailed on the lilies coloring so I decided to keep the card super simple. I just added a little watercolor circle behind the bouquet and some white cord.

My favorite flower of all time -- the lily! I love how you colored them and I don't have the zig markers but I really know that I need them. I have a birthday coming up and am asking hubs to gift these to me. I choose and buy my own stamps and these are a must have for my arsenal. Just beautiful!
