Inspired by All the Little Things #9

I am very excited to be joining the Inspired by All the Little Things challenge team for the next term! Join us every Saturday for fabulous inspiration. You have until Thursday at 11:55 p.m. PST each week to link up at the main post and we hope you'll play along! 

I adored the messy watercolour look and the bold, vibrant florals and got busy creating! 

After stamping and heat embossing the flowers and stems on watercolour paper, I used a combination of Zig Clean Color markers and dye inks for watercolouring them. A few flicks on ink here and there add to the messy look. A big, bold sentiment in sparkly black paper complimented the panel perfectly. 

Supplies Used: 
Sketched Blooms (My Favorite Things)
Color Pop Florals (Papertrey Ink)
Summer Garden (Simon Says Stamp)
Hand Lettered Thanks (Wplus9)

Head on over to the challenge blog to see how my wonderful team mates were inspired by this picture and then go pull out your supplies and get crafty! Have a great day.
