Yellow Flower

Happy Tuesday Everybody.

I'd like first to give a warm welcome to Donna Mary Anne and Marie.  I'm so pleased that you decided to join me here.

It would be so nice if you were able to pop in and visit Donna and Mary Anne.  Unfortunately, Marie I can't find you but if you leave me a comment I will visit you too.

This card was made at a workshop some time ago.  The set used is by Paper Artsy.   I added the sentiment, by Paula Pascal and the button when I got home.

We coloured the background with Distress inks.  I chose pink and yellow which is one of my favourite colour combinations.  The image was stamped directly onto the card and then just the flower was stamped again.  I painted the image and extra flower with acrylic paints.  I decided to paint my flower with  a dry brush although everyone else chose to do theirs with smooth water colouring.  The flower head was then cut out, shaped and decoupaged.

Thank you for your visit.  I do hope you will come back again soon.

Very stylish indeed Barb.

Oh, perhaps you happened to come to the party when we were playing hide and seek. Did you hear someone quietly counting to 100???? What a shame.

Come by tonight and bring something illicit! That's the way to get in!

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Beautiful card, Barb! I like how the flower head is decoupaged and popped up! So fun to go to workshops - they haven't had any workshops around here for years. That's how I started stamping - I attended a workshop! They were so much fun!
