Fresh flower inspiration

Hello and happy Friday everyone!
Cripes, it’s been quite the week, so I’m *really* glad it’s the end of the week. We have been mad busy getting ready for something exciting which is happening this weekend – I shall share more next week, including some photos if I get any good ones ;)

Meantime, here’s a card that I want to share. Spent a bit of time with my watercolour pencils last night – it was so relaxing to just do a good bit of colouring. Even if my colouring skills only extend as far as a bit of watercolouring… I’m always amazed by you ladies who are a whizz with your Copics!

The flower is this cling stamp, ‘Large Flower’, CG134, by Hero Arts, and I stamped and coloured it twice so I could cut out some extra petals to layer behind. A full blousy bloom!
Here’s a close-up…

I added a few seed beads to the centre, stuck with Glossy Accents. I love how this one turned out – really fresh and happy, no? Hope the person who this card is destined for likes it!

Bye for now, and see you tomorrow for an SOS – Sketch-On-Saturday! Even though we are busy doing things over the weekend, I have some treats planned for you anyway ;)
