  3. This is totally gorgeous. I love the vases and doing it with a monochromatic look is simply awesome. What a 'wow' card!!!

  4. Grounding with W3 and W0...that's a new one for me! I usually use them to make something vintage looking, but I am going to definitely try this. It looks wonderful with the monochromatic vases.
    That's the prettiest flower too and you choice for how to display this image, really makes the flowers pop so beautifully.

    Thank you SO much for sharing your talent with us at Make It Monday. Best of luck to you...
    Hugs to you,

  5. Marie, This is wonderful! You did an outstanding job with the still life and don't you love how W3 and W0 work so well and have you tried them with your reds? Take care and maybe we can talk some day when you have off.
    Hugs, Pat
