Ching-Chou Kuik Flora and Fauna Set 1 - Using Jasmine

Good morning!  How is everyone?  It has been very wet and cold here in Southern CA.  We went from a severe drought to an abundance of rain.  It had been cooler too than normal.  The cool temperatures would be better without the dampness.  LOL!  At least it isn't snow.  

It is time for another Ching-Chou Kuik Blog Inspiration post and our topic this week is "All About The Blues".  I had fun with this topic.  It is hard sometimes to find many different shades of the same color; but I was able to do it.  Plus, I decided to go with as much blue as I could on the image as well.   This is just one of 8 images in Ching-Chou Kuik Flora and Fauna Set 1.  This image is Jasmine.  I love this set of images.  Of course, I love all of Ching-Chou Kuik creations.  Each one gives me more opportunities to get better with my coloring. LOL!  

I hope you will take the time to join us in our Ching-Chou Kuik Blog Challenge "Use Something New".   This one should be an easy challenge for all of you.  We are also having a Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook Birthday Celebration.   Just click on link for Facebook group; join if you aren't a member, click on photos at the top of page, then on Albums.  Click on the Birthday Celebration folder.  Request your free "Magic Wish" digi and create a fabulous tag to help celebrate Ching-Chou Kuik's birthday.
