Post 228: Floral Card

Hi friends :)

How are you this saturday afternoon? I hope your weekend is going well. Today, I'd like to share a floral card I created with a new altenew stamp I recently bought. Mum and I were crafting together last night, just for fun and she water colored the floral images with the new gansai tambi colors I bought and then in the morning, I added some details with pencil colors, I do not have the fancy prisma or polychromos pencils, so just used the Derwent ones which I've had for ages but not used. My sister gifted them to me when I was in school :) Fussy cut them and created a background water color wash for the floral arrangement, created some splatter, added some thread for interest and texture and adhered the floral arrangement. In the end, added a few clear drops and some details with a white gel pen. 

List of Supplies:

Altenew Stamp- Adore you
Cutplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Die
Versafine Onyx Black Mini Inkpad
Gansai Tambi Watercolors
Derwent Pencil Colors
Tombow Mono Multi Glue
Canson Watercolor Paper
White Cardstock 250 gsm
DCAM clear droplets
Sakura Gelly Roll White Gel Pen

Here are a couple of photographs of the card:

I am playing along with the following challenges:

Addicted to stamps & more #250 (I was inspired by the pinks and greens)
