Flower Blooms

This week I was asked to make a 60th birthday card for a friend of a friend.... as I don't know this person, I decided CAS flowers would do the trick.


I used one of the flowers in the Clearly Besotted set " Take Good Care" and white embossed onto some cream watercolour paper after printing the sentiment on the computer.  I used my Koh-i-noor watercolour paints and a wet on wet technique to colour.  Love how this gives lots of shading and colour dimension. Finished with some splatters of the paints to balance the card.

I am entering this intoo CASology this week - cue being Blossom
 

Thanks for visiting.
