Countryside Bouquet

Hello again!   I have been playing with Power Poppy's Countryside Bouquet digital image that I printed on watercolor paper and water colored with Distress inks and a water brush.  This is only the second image that I have ever colored in this manner.  I must say that I was really happy with the final results and how well I stayed in the lines. To see the details even better, click on the image to enlarge.  The hardest part of this card was deciding how to finish....the image laid on my desk a few days before I finally chose the card base and background. I pulled out the blue from the bouquet by adding some ribbon and sprinkles.  I thought this looked best as a square card which I seldom make.

I will share this at the Power Poppy Peep of the Week challenge.

Theresa, love your colors in this beautiful bouquet, and your coloring is over the top gorgeous! I really like how you added the bit of extra color at the base of the cosmos petals. Your background paper is subtle and perfect, too. So glad to see your card in our Power Poppy challenge this week!
