Watercolored flowers

Back in June 2016 I had my first card kit swap with Nonni and Marina, and Nonni's kit contained this lovely flower backgrond. I was so happy when I found this Hero Arts stamp some months later. But it's actually the first time I use my own stamp, so this is my NBUS element #1.

I was inspired by the color scheme over at Color Throwdown.

I used my spun sugar DI and 2 gelatos in mint and aqua for my watercoloring. I finished with a coat of Perfect Pearls. I used a die to cut my panel for the sentiment. Then I stamped and cut the little butterfly, it was a stamp that came with a freebie set a few years back and looking at it I saw it hadn't been inked et. So this NBUS element #2.


This card is for:
Color Throwdown - #427 Color Inspiration
Darnell's NBUS challenge - #9
4 Crafty Chicks - #335 Watercolour

    Awww.... Love your cards with use of pink! They aren't too much girly, and look very elegant and sweet!!! This background is amazing and your watercolouring makes the flowers pop out! Very clean classy design, and the sentiment with the butterfly match with it perfectly, so feminine and sweet!
    Another pin for my board :)
