Flowers Feed The Soul

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Design Team is challenging us to use : Water.  You can use any medium that includes water, on your cards, so I picked Flourishes "Lenten Rose" set and watercolored it all in. 

I used Flourishes "From the Garden" for my sentiment. Then I used Tombows to watercolor it all in, cut it out and popped it up on popdots. I used a Spellbinders Circle and Scalloped Circle die, placed over a Lost & Found My Mind's Eye paper. I used a small Spellbinder Flourish in the corner with some Kaiser Kraft Champagne Bling. I used some Ribbon from Flourishes and a metallic ribbon from Making Memories.

When I started my card, I heard Adele's "Set Fire To The Rain", her new radio single.  I was really inspired by the music and the emotions, and decided to make my card a bit bolder and spicier then I usually do. I colored the flowers deeper then I normally would, so they would really pop off the page. Then I used a dark, espresso cardstock to accent and to the drama of the bold flowers. I left it largely unembellished and I think it looks better that way.

Tombows used: 772, 847, 055, 991, 993, 098, 451, 452, 491, 493, 528
