CUTplorations February Challenge

Afternoon peeps.
It's time for a brand new challenge over at CUTplorations.
Here is my inspiration card for you.

I used this month's pic, taking the heart shape, watercoloured flowers and colours as inspiration.

To start I die cut some outlines from white card using STAMPlorations Trendy Spring Blooms die set.
From a panel of white card, I cut a heart shape and then filled the space created with the die cuts, securing them with tape around the edges.
On a second panel I stamped the equivalent stamps from the Trendy Spring Blooms stamp set, using a waterbrush to pull the DI ink used to fill the outlines and even adding some of the same to the outer edges. The small flowers from the Frames and flowers stamp set were used to infill between.
The gold heat embossed sentiment is from the  Bloom Sketches set. 

To complete the card, I trimmed the heart panel down and glued the die cut outlines over the watercoloured panel, which was then adhered to an A6 white base card.

That's all from me for the mo, but there's more fab inspiration from the rest of the team here.
