Momas Julhyacint - Christmas Hyacinth


How about some freshly bloomed flowers in bright colors with a heavenly scent? Do you grow Christmas Hyacinths? When I was a kid my mom always started them in September so they would be in full bloom around Christmas time. The hyacinth bulbs where sitting in - actually on top of - special bowls full of water. I remember she used special paper cones in bright colors to cover the bulbs during the first weeks. 

My favorite hyacinth color always was violet. When I saw this beautiful Hyacinth image, called Julhyacint from Momas lil' shop of stamps I knew I gonna color it in violet shades. It's available as digital stamp.


Another CAS card here. I colored using Derwent Inktense pencils. I love the brilliant intense colors of these ink-like watercolor pencils and the fact that they are permanent when dry. Also that they can be used in both ways, with and without water! I used them as watercolor pencils.


Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Sunday!

Hugs,
