Bright Blossoms

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

I am loving the colors that Cindy chose for Color Hues #84, Peach and Green.

I was going through some of my dies a while back and found this die that I'd forgotten about.
So I put it in my "need to use" pile.  These colors worked perfectly for it.

I had the outline already cut from white cardstock in the envelope and cut another
from a scrap of mixed media paper, keeping the inside pieces intact.

I love coloring die cuts and one of my favorite ways to do it is sitting on a piece of
mixed media paper so my over-wash gives me a perfectly colored background.

I used the left over watered ink for splatters and let it all dry.

I snipped off the flowers from the white die cut and glued over the base piece.

The sentiment is from my favorite Betterpress sentiment set.

Color Hues #84 - Peach and Green
The Flower Challenge #90 - Add Layers (2 layers for the flowers, frame and sentiment)
Seize the Birthday #281 - Any Color and Green

Beautiful! Love those colors and LOVE that floral die. What a brilliant idea to sponge the die cut and use the background with the ink on it. This is just gorgeous, Bonnie!

Bonnie, those little blooms are so sweet - and your 'over coloring' did make a pretty background with your perfect splatters!

JoAnn said...

Beautiful card Bonnie. Those colors are perfect for flowers and I love your die cut flower and the way you colored in over the background panel for extra color. Your splatters are perfect

This arched shape card is a really pretty way to show off the beautiful die cut flower Bonnie, and love the watercolouriong and added spattering and finished with just a simple sentiment. x

I feel as if I never see the same supplies from you twice, Bonnie! Which means you have quite a collection of florals of all kinds. This is just lovely as always. I think arched cards are so attractive. Thanks for being with us at Color Hues.
