These dreamy, hand-sketched mushrooms, flowers, and birds are a great way to add character and detail to cards, scrapbook pages, gift tags, and more. Turn the mushrooms or flowers into a statement piece on your cards using Stampin’ Blends. Or add depth and dimension to the bird using your favorite watercoloring technique. Paired with your favorite sentiments to bring a touch of elegance and charm to any paper craft.

Here's just one beautiful idea to try!
