Floral Silhouette

After a busy week, I wanted to create something simple like a one layer card.  What was I thinking?  One layer is such a challenge for me and probably took twice as long to make - why is that?!   But it was great 'loose myself' time and that's all that matters :)


 For my card, I started with a color wash background with distressed inks.  I stamped these pretty Hero Arts (Real Flowers set) flowers to create a silhouette look and then inlaid the Beautiful die (STAMPlorations) cut from gold cardstock.

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:


  1. Hi Kathy, This is a beautiful watercolor wash! Love the colors and the silhouette flowers are beautiful with it! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! With the silhouette flowers, you could take it to CAS Watercolour too.

  2. The bright yellow and orange watercolour wash is just perfect for your sunflower images, Kathy. Great additional technique with the inlaid sentiment. Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour and CAS Mix Up!
