Old Time Hollyhocks

Hello and Happy Friday!  It's been a busy week but I've managed to fit in a bit of crafting therapy / watercoloring.  Today I'm featuring the Old Time Hollyhocks digital image from Power Poppy.

Now is the time I start crafting with Autumn in mind but I just had to paint these florals with summer colors.  I did loose watercoloring on mixed media paper using Gansai Tambi watercolors.

My card measures 5.5" square; my favorite square size to make because I use 8.5 x 11 card and this size leaves little waste.  The sentiment is from a Tim Holtz sentiment pack and the embellishements were a gift from a crafty friend. 

Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend.  Until next time, Happy Crafting!
