Thinking of Spring Flowers

Welcome to the studio!   Even though snow is on the way, I am thinking of spring flowers.   I was inspired by the colors of the flowers and the weathered wood of the chair in the graphic below in designing this card.   I began by creating a gray weathered wood background with white cardstock, Memento gray flannel ink, scor-pal, and a woodgrain embossing folder.   I used Technique Tuesday flower stamps from Two Steppin' set with distress inks Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar, Squeezed Lemonade, Peeled Paint for the image.  I water colored flowers on a panel of water color paper with a water brush and then fussy cut them.  I assembled the card on a Gray Metallic card base and added a sentiment heat embossed on a strip of Vellum.

It is fun to make your own "Pattern Paper" with this technique to create a wood look.
Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa
