Green is good

Green is good in more ways than way is it is the beginning of Spring and no more snow.  Or at least that is what I thought but my husband just told me the weather for later this week is SNOW!!!! can you believe it.  I finally jumped on the quick and easy watercolor band wagon...basically I wet watercolor paper added a stripe of distress peeled paint stain then a couple of the distress markers in green.  next got out my waterbrush and watered them down some more to make the graduated green background for the funky spring flowers.  for the chevron background I just inked with distress pads then spritzed with water and stamped it. I do like green!  also used a new product for me a Wink of Stella glitter pen.  I like it adds shine and sparkle but not sure you can see it in photo but believe me it's there!
