Papertrey May 2017 Blog Hop

It's time for the monthly Blog Hop at Papertrey Ink, and our inspiration photo is below.

Blog Hop InspirationBlog-hop-logo



 I loved the soft, watercoloured feel to the photo, as well as the colours. I used Friendship Bouquet, stamps and dies, along with a host of Distress Inks, traditional watercolours, as well as a Copic to add some detail to the flowers. A sprinkling of Nuovo Drops were the finishing touch. 






And here is what I came up with:


For a twist, I stamped the leaves first on the paper, as well as a few flowers, then painted on the coral buds with watercolour paints. 

Then I diecut the same leaves and "smooshed" then into 3 colours of Distress Inks before adhering it loosely to the card front. I like the dimension it gave. Diecut flowers were added, with some tucked behind a few of the branches.

Thanks for looking, and much appreciation for taking the time to leave your comments! Happy hopping!

  13. Kathryn, your card is stunning and worthy of framing! Every little detail adds so much, including the Nuvo drops (which I tend to forget I own some) and your arrangement is simply divine.
