This one really is a beauty.
The picture is a little dark, the base card is Smokey Slate, which is a light grey. The flower has been stamped three times. Two of the flowers have been fussy cut, with fewer leaves left on the third one then the layers attached to each other with dimensionals to give that 3d effect.
The flower has been coloured with the watercolour pencils, a little melon mambo and a lot of white. Very little water has been used as the whisper white card is not designed to take a lot of water. So lots of white pencil laid down then a little water to blend with the colour. It does work.
The sentiment if from the Butterfly Basics, another set that has carried forward into the new catalogue I'm pleased to say.
The green matt layer is Old Olive which matches the green leaves below the flower. It is a lovely fresh colour when used with white.
I have added a piece of white ribbon but green or pink would have looked just as good.
