Lily & Milo Redux (get used to that title, ladies, hee)

I'm so in love with my Lily & Milo First Love and Lily Picking Flowers stamps. Rachelle Anne Miller's whimsical illustrations really strike my fancy. I'll be coloring and coloring for months. Get used to it.

I was up until the weeeeeeeee hours putting these together, but I've had a couple of them painted for a few days.

The green/brown/yellow one is the only one I actually painted last night. I wanted something more muted than I'd been doing with the watercolors.

My husband hunted up his heat gun for me, and I love the results I achieved using it to dry between steps as opposed to attempting to be patient (NOT).

I'll put the 'ingredients' at the very end.

Thanks for looking, my bloggin' friends.
