Welcome to our blog hop!  This month my theme is a technique....graduated colors.  For this technique I used acrylic blocks and inks for my colors.  I'm showing lots of Huge Blooms today.  I think there are so many ways to show these blooms but I'm keeping with my technique.   
My yellow bloom has a big diamond of color behind it with lots of layers of cardstock.  See all the color with my multiple of blooms.  Got out my Encore multi-color ink pad...haven't used it in ages so it felt good to get it out and bring it back to life.
 Please continue to check out Janine's blog to see all her
flowers in bloom.
