I made this while I was a Dirty Girl with SplitCoastStampers.

The central theme was, “Sparkling Waters.”

This is the first flower I drew without a tutorial.  It isn’t perfect, but is 1000x better than I thought it would be!  I gave this to mom on Mother’s Day.  She loved it…just like any mom would! 🙂

This was a Favorite of the Week!


  1. Base: 5×7 artist canvas board.

  3. ATC:  I drew the iris and colored the ATC with Clean Color pens.  Edges distressed.
