I colored all of the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, then I used the coordinating dies to die cut them out!

I used a bunch of different pinks and reds to color the blooms!

for the background, I used Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry and Dried Marigold Distress Inks to ink blend on the background. 

then I placed the Music Stencil on top, and used the same colors, but with more pressure, to add the music notes - LOVE it!
then, I splatted some white acrylic paint onto the background, and stamped the sentiment in black.
