Bloomin' June!

Good morning, I've two cards to share today...this one is for our new challenge starting today at Fab'n' Funky, hosting this week is our very talented Pat K and the theme is 'June Blooms'. 
I decided to try something different (for me, anyway!) this week, I used a previously untouched set of floral stamps by Hobby of those buys I really 'needed' at the time...then didn't quite know what to with! So, a bit of making and stamping onto a piece of mixed media paper that I'd previously sloshed some  water and Zig pen ink onto delicately water coloured. Coloured the flowers using Zig pens and a white gel pen, added some random stamping to the background using a grey Versafine Clair ink and a touch of  watery white paint through a stencil, stamped the sentiment and doodled a border. It was fun doing something a bit different!
 Hope you choose to play along at Fab' n' Funky this week, just click on the link to be transported to the Challenge!

I'll be back later today with my second card.

Bwahaha, I love that kind of "delicate watercoloring," too, Chris! You should step into the bold-and-vibrant all-over zone again cuz you did this so well! The colors are amazing! And I love your sweet second card, too! The papers are great around your huggable polar bear!! Hugs, Darnell
