Daffodil Jar/First Day Of Summer

Hi there,

Well summer has arrived! It's a bit toasty here hope you are keeping cool wherever you live.  I am sharing my last project for the Graciellie Creative Design Team.  I decided to color up this daffodil jar from the Simple Wisdom digital stamp set for June.  I really wanted to color this jar because I attended a Copic Advanced boot camp in May and we colored something similar focusing on the jar, water, transparency, added water drops and of course flowers. I feel I achieved what I set out to do here.

I want to say thank you to Gracie of Graciellie Design. I have enjoyed my time with her team. Everyone was a joy to work with. So many talented team members and Gracie always blows me away with her talent!   I will be taking some time off for the summer.
