Wonderful Wild Flowers

Hello crafters, 

It seems summer is here at last and to celebrate I crafted this wild flower meadow.

The focal image has been built up with stamps from the Crafty Individuals set "Wild Flowers" (CI-226), inked with watercolour crayons.
The background sky and grass is also watercolour crayons, shaved over water applied with a brush. 

I then revisited my older supplies and added several layers of papers, some die-cut, one punched and some distressed and/or torn. The many layers is unusual for me and, despite my best efforts, I still didn't incorporate as many as I had planned! It just goes against the grain.

A flower made with punches and patterned vellum and a sentiment die-cut add the finishing touches. 

Thanks for coming by,

  1. Summer on a card Christine, I love all those wild flowers, could be our far paddock which has been left to it's own devises to see what it's produces and so far positive and the wildlife love it.

    The pretty dies cut layers all help add to that natural feel, perfect for Allsorts theme this week and June at We Love Stamping, many thanks for joining in at both.
