Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! You've Got This


Welcome to this week's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.

I got this stamp set for free by participating in a demo-only social media challenge recently. So exciting! I love free stuff....especially free stamps. :)

Perfect Plum is a fairly bold colour, but when it is watercoloured the saturation is so much easier to control so the flower came out quite soft and subtle which I liked. 

Here are our colours....

I used the Mojo Monday sketch to help me too. :)
