In my last craft haul, I bought flower stamps.
Eek! Me with flowers!
I've been staring at them for a month, trying to decide what to do with them ;-)

Here, I've coloured them with Copics - but tried to kind of smoosh on the colour,
instead of my usual flicking technique - to give them more of a water colour look.

I'm entering my card for the challenge at Muse Card Club,
with inspiration this week from Anita Bowden

I used the turquoise, pink and purple colour palette and a birthday sentiment,
stamped in black. 
I don't have any butterflies, so for that element I added a few black gems.

You definitely achieved a watercolour look with the copics! I'm going to try it! Love the bold bright colours! Thanks for joining us at Muse this week!

Love your colors and the smooshing coloring technique ... will have to try it. You and your flower stamps played together nicely, Caroline. Great job.

Woooaaahhh, Caroline this is gorgeous! How strange that I have to stop myself buying flowers and butterflies, together our stash would be perfect! haha
LOVE the way you've coloured these flowers and the placement of all your elements just works beautifully.
Thanks so much for playing along at Muse this week, Anita x
