BOTANICAL BUNCH

Hi Everyone

I thought I'd have a play with a stamp I bought and never used.  It was one of those "see it, must have it" ones and then you don't use it.  I have a few of those!

This one is Botanical Bunch from WPlus9.  I heat embossed it in white onto watercolour card and then coloured in with watercolour pencils.




It was supposed to be in a stitched rectangle but because I wasn't paying attention it somehow didn't all get cut out properly and when I tried to put it through the machine again it wasn't lined up correctly so it's turned out smaller than originally planned.  I inked around the edges of the watercolour card and then layered up with yellow and placed onto paper from Nitwit Collections called Flowershoppe. The sentiment has been stamped in silver metallic.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Just gorgeous water colouring and love the colours you used too. The purple patterned paper and yellow frame sets it off perfectly. So glad you shared it with us at The Flower Challenge!

The watercolours give this a lovely softness and elegance and the perfectly co-ordinated DP layer and border set the gorgeous image off beautifully :-)
