Flowers Galore


I can't believe I haven't played at Colour Q since I left the design team. Where has the time gone? Love this week's colours so I thought I'd combine them with the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches:

I randomly stamped a few blooms from Altenew's Painted Flowers in Melon Mambo and Blushing Bride, then painted around them with some pale blue Glimmer Mist. I love these stamps but sometime I feel that they look a bit overpowering when they cover the entire card, so I added a sheet of vellum to the bottom part to soften it. The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse with a little die cut kraft dragonfly from Fancy That.

Bit late for blogging tonight so enough said...

Thanks for stopping!

  3. This is gorgeous Claire. I do love the blue around the flowers. Lovely touch to add the vellum x

  4. This is such a pretty card, Claire. I love that dragonfly and the font of the sentiment is lovely. Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
