I don't usually attempt CASE challenges...but was drawn in by the beautiful blues and took inspiration from the layout, blue flowers & silver sentiment...I probably would have added some sequins too, but I'm away from home at the moment and only have limited supplies with me. I started by stamping my Woodware 'Perfect Petals' stamp on to some watercolour paper using 'Onyx Black' Versafine Ink...I then heat embossed it using clear powder...I wanted to colour it straight away, and this also gives the added bonus of providing a slightly raised edge which is helpful for stopping your watercolouring from spreading! I watercoloured the flowers using a few shades of blue Distress Ink
(Broken China, Salty Ocean & Tumbled Glass), then used a silver gel pen to colour their centres. Once the flowers had dried, I went over the three largest ones with a clear Wink of Stella pen to give them some sparkle. I heat embossed a sentiment (from a set that came free with a magazine) using 'Metallic Silver Sparkle' embossing glitter by WOW, then added a pierced border using one of my CutterBee Bugs.
