being strong

My aunt is in the hospital so I wanted to make her something cheery and encouraging to hang on the wall. I saw this inspiration photo on the Unity Stamps facebook challenge:

And I loved all the flowers so I decided to make a floral wall hanging for her.
 I first stamped the sentiment in the center of my watercolor paper. Then using the masking technique, I stamped several flowers and leaves around the page.

Then using a waterbrush and gelatos, I colored in all the images. I finished it off by mounting on black cardstock.

Here are all the stamp sets I used:
strong is your only choice
Quiet Essence
Wildflowers & Wings
Best Wishes & Blooms
Finally Fall
you+me =bliss (discontinued)

I'm also linking up to Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday challenge which is ONE LAYER.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great day!
