Faux Watercolour Florals

Just a quick post today as I've spent most of the day doing meal-prep for next week. I just can't get around to cook anything sensible during the week. Either it's meal prep on Sunday or I only eat utter rubbish all week. Lunch salads are already prepped, as are quinoa-olive-feta-tomato-chestnut stuffed peppers. Now I just need to think of something for the other half.

Today's card is inspired by the adorable rainbow birdies over at Fusion. I was also inspired by the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and the Nature theme over at Time Out.

I used the beautiful STAMPlorations Blossom Sprays #1, coloured the stamp with pastel colours of Tim Holtz Distress Markers, spritzed with water and stamped on watercolour paper. I cut the panel using Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies. I added strips of Lawn Fawn patterned paper and attached it onto a cardstock that I had inked up with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn Party Animal.

Stamps: STAMPlorations Blossom Sprays #1, Lawn Fawn Party Animal
