Ellen Hutson Pin-Sights Challenge

I'm squeezing in a card for Ellen Hutson's Pin-Sights Challenge. Here's the inspiration pic.

Lots of florals and beautiful colours!

I used the Essentials by Ellen Wild Garden Die Set for my card. I die cut one of the smaller flowers numerous times from water colour paper and used Distress Inks on them and adhered them to a square card base.

I cut a piece of vellum slightly smaller than the card to soften the background flowers but I still find them a little too bright and distracting. I think I should have used lighter shades of ink on them.

The largest flower from the Wild Garden set was die cut from water colour paper as well, inked up and sprayed with Perfect Pearls. For the flower centre I put a blob of glossy accents and sprinkled on some iridescent beads. I also added a couple of vellum leaves to finish off the flower and the sentiment is from gold foil paper.

I'm also entering this for Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge It's Hip to be Square here.

Thanks for dropping by today!
