Multi coloured flowers ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well.  I have another card to show you today and here it is …

An A5 card which screams spring to me
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Card Mania Challenge CMC#80 Flowers
The Cats Pajamas Challenge  TCP#314 Sentiments 
The Ribbon Girl Challenge May Any Image Challenge
Time Out Challenge #57 be inspired by ‘may all your weeds be wild flowers’
To me that phrase inspires me to create floral cards or projects

I am enjoying playing with these stamps and I love the different looks I have captured using them.  For today’s card I used my Spectrum Aqua pens to stamp and colour the panel and my AquaTints to colour the flower embellishment.  I inked up the pens with my Aqua pens and stamped onto Sheena Douglass card.  I left the stamped panel to dry for about an hour before picking up a just damp paintbrush and I gently dragged the paint to colour the stamped flowers.  

The parchment was a left over snippet from my HOC 1st May post and the patterned paper is also a left over from another project.  I die cut the word from white snippets which I coloured with the yellow Spectrum Aqua pen.  I used a lovely piece of ribbon, sequins, a butterfly and a stamen to decorate the card and I am really happy with the end result.  Not much in the way of mixed media but it was nice and easy to create lol!

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon  ttfn Karen x

The Vellum really does give a very different look Karen as well as adding interest and dimension to your pretty card.
