Collage including some script !

New challenge at TIOT:  'Collage, must include some script on the project.' !
Come join us!

 This is an ATC! After I created the background from inks on the craftsheet, I removed the color in the flowers with some bleach. That's why the flower isn't white allover, but it suits me, to go with the feel of the whole background. The heart of the flowers have been colored with watercolorpencils! 

Yes, this is one of the the new stamps I've designed for Magenta.
