A little floral sax

Water colouring pens don't have to be pale and washed out colours this card shows they can be big and bold too. I used another stamp from Donna Ratcliffe from Crafter's Companion and just love how the entwined flowers make the image unisex. I again used pebeo masking fluid to enable me to create the distress oxide background. I thought the dark blue really offset the bold pinks of the flowers and gold of the sax.

The faux bleach is so easy to do and satisfying in a strange kind of way as is the painting with the water colour pens. The flowers are also stamps from the same set and after fussy cutting I stuck them to the card overhanging the edge of the card before cutting flush with the card edges to form a semi frame. No sentiment but one could be added but love how it just makes a statement as it is.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;-

Stamping sensations - one for the girls

Allsorts - spring flowers or showers

AYLI - favourite colouring medium
(at present water colour pens and oxide inks are my medium
 of favour think mainly as I only recently bought
 them and am learning as I go)

MAWTT- springtime

The Paper Shelter - flowers

Addicted to stamps and more- make your mark
