Flowers For You

Whew!!! I was beginning to think someone wrapped up my muse over the holidays, it felt so good to actually get in the studio and be creative!  I used Card Patterns Sketch 96 as my starting point using the lovely Curio papers by Basic Grey along with Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch Garden Delights set.

I stamped the Watering Can image three times on Watercolor paper, and once on a piece of Basic Grey Curio paper.  The base image is cut with a Spellbinders Circle die, then I pieced the Watering Can with the Basic Grey paper.  The Flowers/Leaves are colored using the Marker Watercoloring Technique, I cut and colored the 2nd and 3rd set of flowers/leaves and popped them up on dimensionals over the base image for added dimension.
