With the help of Altenew 36 Pan Watercolor Set, I did a painterly kind of background with shades of Grey. To showcase the dainty leaves and stems, I think gray is a great choice!
thank you

Once the gray background is dry, I started stamping the leaves and flowers.

I thought it looked great with a subtle stamped background and so, that was what I did.

Instead of stamping the sentiment in black, I decided to white -embossed it and then applied same flower colors.

thank you-001

I added splatter and sequins for the final touches.

I really really enjoyed making this card. Hope you like it!

You're right, that subtle background makes these adorable flowers really POP. The stamping around the colored panel frames it beautifully.

Love your card, Virginia!

Dawn Turley said...

a great card Virginia. I really love the soft grey background. I'm definitely going to try that on my card. The way you left a goodly amount of white around it stamped with grey as well is a perfect foil for the colours.
