I chose these willowy looking floral branches from Home Decor to match the background paper from CTMH White Pines Collection. Yes, I realize it is a Christmas / Winter collection; however, all of these papers are so versatile they can be used for several different occasions!
My jar was cut from White Daisy cardstock and watercolored with the lightest blue paint from the CTMH Watercolor Palette. I then went around the edges with Sky ink.
Those willowy vines were cut from Sweet Leaf cardstock and inked int he same color. The flowers were all cut from Daisy White and inked with pigment inks: Cranberry, Hollyhock and Honey.
My background is watercolor paper and watercolor. Once I painted over the piece in a couple of orange type colors, I loaded my brush and flicked some to put some splatters over it. I went around the edge with Cranberry pigment ink.
I tied it all up with some Sunset Baker's Twine and added some sparkle gems from my stash.
This pretty sentiment is from a CTMH set called Framed (retired).
I'm sending my flowers off to the following challenges:
