A bright and happy card featuring the Floral Essence Bundle
It's my belief that the colours I reach for often provide an indication of my mood, emotions, mental state.  For example, I noticed that I used a lot of black and grey during the worst of my "cancer phase" and that I made a lot of monochrome cards.  I don't have a problem with that - I happen to like black and monochrome - but found it interesting.

So - I'm seeing this card as perhaps the harbinger of better times ahead.  

Today I'm celebrating!

Those gorgeously furry Perennial Essence Floral Centres really add depth and a fun element to the card
If you're wondering about that background ... to an extent, so am I!  I forgot to write down the steps I took as I went!

I know I gave a piece of watercolour paper a really good spritzing with water and then stamped some of the flowers with Lovely Lipstick ink - hoping for a soft, blended effect that didn't eventuate.  So then I re-spritzed and smooshed into some drops of Mango Melody and Lovely Lipstick inks. 

Still unhappy with the result, I put Lovely Lipstick ink onto the raised side of the Parisian Flourish embossing folder and used it to stamp onto my, still wet, piece of watercolour paper.  

I think that's it.

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!
