Watercolour Blooms

These cold wintery days in Canberra are good for one thing, and one thing only….. stamping! 🙂 The weather here has been bitterly cold and miserable, and I am looking forward to seeing more and more flowers starting to bloom.  We have some beautiful Camelia’s in bloom in our garden and there is gorgeous yellow wattles starting to show themselves, which is a sure sign that spring isn’t all that far away.  Today I have really enjoyed watercolouring some of the Australian native flower stamps from the Bloom Away set.  I am holding a class in August where we will be making this card, along with three others using the Bloom Away set.  Go to my Upcoming Events page to find out more details, and make sure you contact me to book in.
