Hearts & Flowers

Over at SPA this week their theme is hearts and flowers. Not being one for lots of hearts, I decided to go for flowers in the shape of hearts - bleeding hearts, a beautiful Chinese spring flower from the poppy family.

I drew out my flower stem and then added colour using watercolours, adding some white detail on top and a spray of tattered angels in blue and copper. I distressed the edge with gathered twigs distress ink to finish the look.

I can't wait for winter to be over and all the spring flowers to make their appearance. There is nothing like a bit of colour in the garden to bring some cheer.
