Fusion challenge

Hi everyone!




Posting my card for the current challenge over at the Fusion Blog.



This is the card I've made.  I've used both the sketch and the photo as inspiration.






The flower stamps I've used are from a local craft shop, Great Impressions.  
I tried my hand at watercolour painting for the first time, but clearly I don't know anything about painting!!!  Need to find some videos showing me how to do it properly!!!
Added some drywall tape and twine and lots of bling.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.



Hope you all have a super weekend!!

Thanks for popping in!!
Keep well!!
Kind regards
Petra

Oh I disagree! Your flowers are beautifully water colored! Super fun card design! I love what can be done with drywall tape! This card is gorgeous!

Geri said...

Two words....WINNER, WINNER!

Beyond stunning! Your design rocks! In my opinion, your water colored flowers are gorgeous and look like the work of a seasoned painter! I'm really, REALLY envying the perfectly straight rows off bling!!!

Jy het daardie prentjie se kleure en ontwerp so mooi vasgevang Petra! Voorwaar 'n pragstuk in die retro styl.

GORGEOUS! Nothing short of it. I love the twisting threads around those watercolor flowers and the asymmetry of it all is perfect. So are the sparkles (duh!)!
