I have the instructions for this card on the Heartfelt Creations blog. It took several hours to watercolour all 4 identical images I stamped to create this gorgeous, full nosegay.
It took another few hours to then cut the images apart to be able to layer up the image to give it this gorgeous depth and *uber* full foliage look I wanted. This project is 1 1/2" deep and really is a good candidate for a shadow box to protect the blossom.
I love this extravagant look and I feel like the time that went into this project was worth every minute. I used a Mojo Monday layout for this card and water coloured it using Distress Ink re inkers. It felt good to use this colouring medium again after so many copic and prismacolour projects. I want to keep all my colouring medium skills honed so I have to remember to water colour more often since that's the medium I use the least.
I appreciate so much when you stop by my blog and when you leave your kind words.
