I started with this image that I stamped in Archival and coloured with a mix of Inktense and Staedler watercolour pencils. I then chose three patterned papers from the Crate Papers Clementine stack to follow this sketch with. I bought this stack to challenge myself to use papers I wouldn't normally.
For the background layer I chose chevrons, my strip is stripes and instead of a wavy border I chose a piece of paper from the stack that had skinny border like images on it and cut out the one with the flowers and adhered it to the stripy paper. I added a teeny dot of red Liquid Pearls to the middle of each of those flowers.
Next I chose a red and a green Prima flower and glued them together and onto the card. I added some perfect pearls to the middle of them too. Then I had a teeny accident and had to add the green flower which made the card unbalanced so I added the red one as well and added liquid pearls to the middle of these too lol. I hand cut the banner and used my Martha Stewart score board to score where wanted the folds to be. I used a triple layer of foam tape in the middle to pop it off the card. The sentiment is from Mpress stamped with Vermillion archival.
