I love spring, flowers, bright colors…and zentangle!  What could be better than this stamp from So Suzy?  Not much!
I live in the South, Spring is erupting everywhere.  I love this time of year…except for my allergies it would be perfect.
Another watercolor challenge.  Yes, I am getting better at this.  If nothing else, less scared of it.
The background was created using a watercolor technique.
Another technique used in this card is paper tole.  I cut around some of the petals in the two larger flowers and lifted/curled them up.  I colored on the back side of the flower so that white didn’t show.

  1. Card Base:  Dark blue Bazzill card stock, A6.  Stamped with flourish stamp, inked with white pigment ink, embossed with clear powder.
  2. First Layer:  Watercolor with Distress Ink pads – Peacock, Jeans, Ocean.  Edges cut with special rotary trimmer on guillotine.  Edges were inked with deep blue ink pad.
  3. Gems:  Matte lavender gems.
  4. Stems:  Product packing that I cut squiggly, then sprayed with Glimmer Mist – Mantis, and dotted with Copics.
  5. Bar at the Bottom:  First layer – glitter border from K&Company.  Second Layer – strip of the watercolor paper from the first layer, stamped with a stamp to give texture and Distress Ink – Paint.
  6. Bow:  Jewelry cording tied in a bow.
  7. Flowers:  These were both stamped with Elderberry from Memento and cut out with a Silhouette (Pixscan).  Pansy Doodle (2) – Colored with Copics (RV 63, 66, 69 and YR 16, 12, 01), selected petals  done is paper tole technique, and pink pearlized gem for center.  Daisy Doodle (1) – Colored with Copics (YR 16, 12, 01), tan pearlized gem for center, each petal has a sequin.
  8. Inside:  Scrap piece of coordinating pink cardstock, attached with the cording.
