Fusion: Ombre

I tried three different colors for my flowers before settling on lavender.  It reminded me of an experiment my third graders would do when we studied plants.  The kids loved to see a white chrysanthemum change color when food coloring was added to the water in the vase.  And it never failed every year someone would think of splitting the stem and using two - or more -  vases of colored water to create a multicolored flower.  And it also never failed that someone would spill their vase and go home wearing a big yellow - or orange - or blue splot.......I miss those little kids!

So many options with this week's Fusion challenge!  Hope you join us!

This is beautiful! Your flowers work so well with that dreamy background! As I was taking my walk yesterday, I saw the Queen Anne's Lace was blooming along the roadside, and I remember coloring them with food coloring too! Maybe I can convince Miss Cassidy to take a walk and pick some this week!

Linda, I remember 3rd grade as being my favorite - you know it was because of the teacher! I'm betting you were splendid at it … and your card is just that, too: splendid!
You picked the perfect color for this pretty bloom, and for your perfectly fabulous DSP!

Gorgeous card, Linda! Your background is so pretty and I love that you chose lavender for your flowers!
I'll bet you were a really amazing teacher and I'll bet those little 3rd-graders are missing you, too! My 3rd-grade teacher, 'Sister Annunciata' never mentioned the word 'science'...can you believe that? Thanks for the science lesson :)

Gorgeous, gorgeous card! Enjoyed your teaching story and well remember the whole osmosis lesson we all apparently had with changing flower colors!

I did not have that stamp set on my wishlist - but you've shown me that that cute little flower is worth the entire set!
