I have been feeling a bit weird lately. Not sure what's going on, I just can't focus on anything. If you are following the food blog you know it's been very quiet over there as well. And it's been very simple cards coming out from the InvisiblePinkCraftRoom lately. I have also needed lots of help and inspiration to get going, and thankfully there are all the wonderful challenge blogs out there to turn to. This card is the love child of this week's Freshly Made Sketch and Colour Me... challenge. I do love the Hero Arts Layered Flower stamp, I know I have used it in a very similar way previously here. But I do love the texture and feel of the watercolour paper and colouring with just one marker and a AquaFlo brush is so easy that even my non-existent patience can deal with it currently so I thought why not create another card with a pretty flower.
I stamped the flower onto watercolour paper using Staz-on and coloured using the Stampin' Write Melon Mambo marker and a Aquaflo brush. I used foam pads to stick the flower together, and added some stickles for that lovely glitter effect. I embossed the So Saffron card stock and matted onto daffodil delight. The twine is from my stash, but it matches the melon mambo very well. I didn't feel like I was able to fit a sentiment onto the card front, so I added one inside the card instead.
