Beautiful Blossoms March 2023

 
It's March 15th and time for another month of Beautiful Blossoms Challenge entries. Here is our inspiration board and you can easily see I was inspired by the photo in the upper left.
To create this card I used:
7) Waffle Flower Patched Layers (retired).
I always try and add some of the flower color onto the leaves, sort of as a reflection. It makes it easier for your eye to travel around the image and ties the images together.
A little splatter of the green paint to fill in the background.
I made a second card with all the same products, but not no-line watercoloring. The hydrangea image was stamped with Altenew's Obsidian Black Ink and sprinkled with Altenew's Crisp Clear Embossing Powder while still wet and heat set. 
2 rows of gold washi tape from Altenew to add a little something.
Thank you for joining me and we'd love for you to come join in for March's Challenge!

  1. Anita, your "style" always melts my heart. In this case your gorgeous intense colors (even the pastel pinks in the top card) just make me want to plant them in my garden! The highlights of pink in the watercolor image on top are lovely. I enjoy doing that was well. And the bolder magenta looks REALLY amazing! I've never applied darker floral colors in the leaves like that, and want to case the idea from you! Thanks for the tip! Beautiful - oh so beautiful!

    1. Oh Diane, I can't tell you how many time I've messed up with splatters. Most of the time now I do a practice sheet for the first flick or two so that most of the paint is gone. Thank you for the wonderful comments!
