Magnolia Season

 Hey Friends! I'm still struggling with my mojo, so today I'm sharing an old , but never before posted make,  to celebrate the emergence of Magnolias in our part of the world with the promise of Spring. 

I used a beautiful stencil from Altenew and one of the old stamps. The paints are Altenew Artist Watercolors and the paper is Arches. 
I considered adding a sentiment, but decided to leave it, so that the Magnolia is the focus.

I'm sharing at the following challenges:- 

Here is a picture I took during my morning walk a few weeks ago...
