Inspired Flowers


I'm back quickly today with a card for The Colour Throwdown.  I was initially inspired by this gorgeous card by Therese of Lost in Paper.  I didn't end up with quite the same loose watercolor look though.  I used the backside of the stamps inked and spritzed with water for the watercolor feel and then wasn't thrilled with it so I overstamped the flowers and leaves with the lined images.  Quite a different look in the end but it's fun to see where inspiration leads you.  :)


    

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Watercolour) Ranger, (Mossy Made) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Flowers from Our Friendship Grows) Lawn Fawn, (Sentiment from Many Thanks) Altenew
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint, Brushed Corduroy Distress Inks) Ranger
Gems:  Doodlebug

So so beautiful Jen, great idea to restamp the images over top of the watercolour background, it's perfect! Thanks too for the sweet comment about my card x

Gorgeous sunflowers, Jen. The over stamping worked perfectly. PS: The link to Therese's card isn't correct.

These flowers are so pretty, and I am admiring the courage you had to do all that restamping and splattering. Worked out perfectly.
