I've been in a strange place over the last few months, not sure whether I wanted to pick up my markers or read a good book. But once I received the
Before even getting to the coloring part, I had in mind to create a one-layer project that included both the images and the sentiment. To achieve this, I took out my Chloe Alpha Uppercase stamp set and started placing the different letters on my stamping platform on a piece of A2 white coloring cardstock.

Next, I stamped the second and second-to-last letters quite close to the first stamped ones, ending with the middle one, to create the word "Hello".
Once the sentiment was done, I placed the flower border from the
Garden's Edge Slimline stamp set on my stamping platform in a way that featured only partially the flowers I wanted to color at the bottom of the panel.
And I mirrored the flower border at the top of the panel as well.
Once that was done, all I had to do was to start coloring all the beautiful flowers with my alcohol markers.
