Happy graduation

My friend's daughter graduated from high school, and I made this card for her. Lauren is not my kid, but this still makes me feel so old because I have known her for ten years or so. Wow!

I tried a new watercoloring technique for my card. I used Distress Ink to paint the peonies through a stencil from Memory Box. Because the ink was more fluid, it did sneak under the stencil here and there. But it just gave it even more of a watercolor look.

This is my second entry into the Pretty Pink Posh watercolor blog hop. :)


Thanks for looking, and have an awesome day! :)
