Bring me Flowers


It's double nemesis day for me today - watercolouring and flowers.
The two things I can't seem to get to grips with!
I will NOT be beaten though.  Ha ha!    :-)


My inspiration came from Tenia's gorgeous Muse card (see below).

For my background I stamped and embossed the flowers in white,
and used my little set of kids paints, to add some pink watercolouring.
Then I went back and stamped a few black dots here and there.

Once this was dry, I attached a strip of dp and my sentiment banners -
then popped up the elephant on foam pads and scattered a few sequins.

Then all that was left to do, was  attach the panel to my pink, card base.



 

I would also like to enter my card for...
Papertake Weekly - A Cut Above (die cut elephant / fussy cut flower)

Supplies.
WPlus9, Unforgettable.    Lawn Fawn, Penelope's Blooms.
Sentiments - Clearly Besotted, Make a Wish and Basic Banners.
Sequins/Black Gems.
