You know, I do not think there is enough blue in the scrapbooking / cardnmaking world. Yes, there's loads of almost blue - turquoise, duck egg, aqua, teal etc. but very little proper blue. I'm talking rich cornflower blue. Yum. So when I stumbled upon this gorgeous picture on Pinterest (follow my colour inspiration board here) I was inspired.
Today's card is on the Hero Arts blog, and features one of their digital cut files for the Silhouette - the Striped Flower. I cut three different size flowers from watercolour card then used some REAL proper gorgeous watercolours to colour them. I've got this set of Winsor and Newton Watercolours (a gift from my generous and artistic father) and they are stunning. Once dry, I added Rock Candy Stickles and tiny sequins for some sparkle, and some die cut vellum Spring Branches.
These watercolours really are the bees knees of watercolours. :) And this colour… delicious.

That's all for today.
Bye for now.
