Beautiful Blossoms May 2023

Welcome friends! It's mid-May and time for a Beautiful Blossoms Challenge. Here is the inspiration board:
I was totally inspired by the top left corner picture with the bright beautiful flowers, so much so, I made 2 different cards:
The flowers were cut out of Taylored Expressions Watercolor Paper with the Be Bold Blooms die set from Spellbinders. I used the Altenew's 36 Pan Watercolor Pallete to color all the flowers and leaves.
The sentiments are from Altenew's Birthday Builders Stamp Set. This is such a great set to have in your stash. So very versatile. This set has 18 different fonts which can be mixed and matched 300 different ways.
The card above has Hero Arts Lacquer Pen - Sparkle Pen. Leaves such a great shine!
The flowers above were edged with Ranger Ink - Tim Holtz - Gilded Foundry Wax.
It comes in a 2 part kit, Mined is the other wax. Once applied, it is heated with a heat gun and melted. I can't seem to pick up the beautiful color. It looks dark in the pictures, but it really a beautiful shiny gold.
Overall, I love a card with plenty of white, texture and bright colors. Thank you for sticking to the end and I hope to see you at The Beautiful Blossoms May Challenge!
