I stamped the leafy flourish in black archival ink. Then I added the bird in flight and the little sentiment. All these stamps were free with a magazine.
Then I added some colour to the leaves and flowers. I used distress markers and a waterbrush. The leaves are coloured with twisted citron and the flowers with fossilized amber and wilted violet.
I then went round the card with a black micron pen and drew squiggly lines as shown. i coloured them in with the same markers.
I also added some clear wink of stella to flowers but this is really difficult to photograph.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Less is more - one layer - add a flourish
CASology - open
Sweet stampin' challenge - flowers
