Just Like You

I had an idea to group the flowers from Simon's Partial Cut Flowers on the front of a card, watercolor them, pop them and then add some leaves.  For once my card turned out just the way I envisioned it!

I used Sargent watercolor pencils to color in the flowers after making the cuts; it was fairly easy to "keep inside the lines" that way, and then I just went over them with a water pen.  The leaves are from Wplus9's Fresh Cut Florals stamps and dies, and I added various enamel dots to the center of each flower.  My sentiment is an old Hero Arts one, called To Be So Nice.

I'll be adding this to Virginia's View challenge: Die Cuts.

  18. LEAVES! That's what's missing! My efforts with this die have not gone well, and I think it needs leaves. And brads in the flowers' centers. I feel a CASE coming on. :) Thanks for the inspiration to get that die out again and play with it some more!
