A new month so a new challenge at HLS Birthday where it's always Anything Goes!
There has been a decidedly autumnal feel these past few days but there are still a few flowers in the borders valiantly shining forth. After the dahlias and zinnia's there are a few wild ox-eye daisies that must have grown from seed set earlier in the year to flower this late! They are very welcome as the days shorten and the leaves begin to fall.
Here is my take using an old STAMPlorations set Bloom Sketches and Brusho.
The flower heads were stamped in Memento London Fog and then masked before the Brusho was added after the card panel was wet with water, a mix of Leaf Green and Prussian Blue. Before removing the masks, a few freehand strokes were added with a strong mix of the green to create stems and grass.
The masks were removed and the flowers shaded with a grey Zig watercolour brush marker. The flower centers were coloured using more Brusho sprinkled on damp centers.
Finally the panel was trimmed down and added to a white base card and the Wplus9 happy die cut added, along with the black birthday banner embossed with white EP.
