Brushstroke Flower

Good morning! I have another Brushstroke card to share with you today. This one I made for my mid-month creation for Penny Black and More. If you haven't played along yet, then come join us, our theme this month is Birthdays. And don't forget you can enter up to 3 times for more chances to win! We  have some great prizes up for grabs again!

I can't believe how easy it was to create this card! And fast too!
I simply inked the stamp with distress markers using 3 different colors, spritzed with water and then stamped onto watercolor paper. After it dried, I used a zig clean color brush pen and an aquapainter to add blue shading around the image. The sentiment was stamped onto vellum just like I did on my brushstroke birds card that I made a few days ago. (Just scroll down if you'd like to see that one.) A few sequins were added and and a strip of washi tape to finish it off.



I would like to also play along here:
Alphabet Challenge -  D for Dots (dots on washi tape)
PDE Linky Party  Anything Goes
Seize The Birthday - Birthday + Optional Topping: Floral
Fresh Brewed Designs -  Flowers

Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you're having a great week!

The bold pink with the hints of purple work beautifully with this lovely PB image Elly and give super watercolour effect.
