I purchased this set of flower and leaf dies from Ellen Hutson and oh how I love them.
I know I could use them in a whole lot of ways and so here is one way. I started out making a very simple background with Distress Stains. I wanted green to be my main color for the background and I wanted the watercolor effect to be minimal. That amazing sentiment is from a new set by Tim Holtz. The font is so fun.
I cut out the two sizes of flowers and the two leaves from watercolor paper and then added various colors with Distress Stains. I then coated the leaves with gold Distress Stain and some gold paint. I love how easy it is to created a neat color combo with the dabber top of the stains.
This fits the CAS on Sunday challenge to use GOLD.
And the Addicted to Stamps challenge by using the Photo Inspiration. I love all of the whites with the splash of pink in the middle. I thought my card slightly fit with that with the simple background and the pink flowers.
It also fits the Paper Players color combination.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
