Gratefully inspired

Hi crafters. I went on the Altenew Educators “For the love of flowers” blog hop and was particularly inspired by a card by Maryam. She coloured the Inked Rose stamp in a galaxy style. I liked the way she used added the purple and blue watercolours and decided to try and colour some flowers like that.

I stamped the flowers from Grateful Heart on watercolour paper in black. I wet areas and dropped in various purple and blues. I left some white areas like Maryam did. I coloured the centers with glitter gel pens. I added some watercoloured leaves from the Adore You stamp set. I adhered all these to an indigo piece of recycled cardstock which I spattered with white paint. The sentiment die cut was cut from the same cardstock as the background, with the Altenew Script Words 2 die and layered on watercolour paper. The additional sentiment is from the Altenew Birthday Greetings stamp set and was embossed in white.
I am entering this card in the linky associated with the blog hop as well as the Altenew March Inspiration Challenge
