May Flower of the Month

Finally finished the Lila Grey May Flower of the Month piece.  I don't know why it took me so long.
I had a hard time with this one.  The background seemed a little too intense for these delicate flowers so I kept adding and changing until I felt good about it.  Lastly I colored the leaves and stems and kept the flowers white.  It stood out like a sore thumb.  UGH!  I had to put it aside again.  Then I printed a new digi (such a huge advantage of working with digi stamps is we can resize!) but a much bigger version.
I fussy cut the image and placed it over the other flower image.  After adding some color, I decided to add some pencil scratches around the lines.  LOVED IT!  Then I added a little bit of white pen marks here and there as well.

Finally happy!
