Framed flower

Hi crafters. I was very excited today to discover a delivery from Memory Box. I immediately made a card with the Brilliant Sunflower die. I cut it from watercolour paper. I started putting pink and green watercolour on it but when I went looking for a tiny brush I found Daler Rowney pearlescent liquid acrylic in Moon violet. I went over my petals with this and added a little to the centre. I painted the outline and frame with gold acrylic paint. The centre and stem have some Arteza marker colour on them. I went over the stem with green marker mixed with gold paint. The leaf was painted in a combination of the flower and stem colours. I backed the frame with pattern paper and fun foam and added some Memory Box mini butterflies from a gold painted scrap. The sentiment was cut from the gold scrap with Poppy Stamps Doodle Happy Birthday die. I placed everything on a black cardbase that I had previously stencilled with Faded Jeans and Wilted Violet distress oxides using the Prima Ornate Lace Stencil. I added a coating of gloss to the flower centre.

I am entering this card in the Simon says Stamp Stamptember Memory Box collaboration challenge.

Thank you very much Memory Box.
