I had to check out your blog to see what you did here...I love your image and how you "painted" with distress inks...those flowers are just gorgeous. And your bg with fabulous little artistic bursts of color (applied with a "spatula"!!??) is wonderful..love the green pearls. I would say your mojo hasn't gone anywhere Lee-Anne!!

I really love the bigness and openness of this - I have a hard time leaving things white, so that is something I noticed immediately. Great job with the challenge! I'd challenge you to go deeper with your shading by using a pencil, but I love it just as is too. Thank you for playing along!
