Ranunculus Love

Happy Friday! Today the Bloom Brigade and I are showcasing the newly released digital stamp set… Ranunculus!
This digital bouquet comes with an additional sentiment; “Sending Peace”.

For most of my floral cards, I always Google the blooms to check out what colours they tend to come in and get an idea of what shade of green their stems and leaves are.  So for today’s card, I was inspired by this stunning bouquet I found initially on Pinterest (gotta love that site!!)…

Aren’t those swirled shades of deep pinks and glorious purples delightful?  Sigh…

So here is my card inspired by this image…
I watercoloured the image using a variety of water based inks.  It's not my most favourite card by any means - I desperately need some creative mojo.  Do you have any of that n hand at all?

For the sentiment I chose to use one from the clear stamp set “Best Day Ever” stamp set instead.

Now… check out what the rest of the extremely talented Bloom Brigade designer blogs have in store for you...
