I'm rapidly approaching mid-summer and my roses are still surviving the heat and dry - just - but these colours brought them to mind. So, I got out an old favourite, Birthday Blooms.
I've black embossed them on watercolour paper and used inks and an aquapainter to colour them in.
The other inspiration for this card came from the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch.
Update: Very happy to get an Honourable Mention at Cas(e) This Sketch.
Why not put aside some quiet time in the busy season and join us for our final challenge of 2017?
There are only a couple of things to remember.
- Create a NEW paper-craft project specifically for this challenge.
- Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us.
- Please provide a direct link to the post featuring your challenge entry.
- Please link your card to no more than four challenges, total. Entries linked to more than 4 challenges, including ours, will be deleted without notification.
- Have fun!
