A weekend of potting plants made me take a second look at Altenew's May 2022 Inspiration Challenge - isn't that a gorgeous bloom? Terri Koszler is our host - she took this photo at the Botanical Gardens in Bristol, UK. It brought my mind to one of Altenew's Paint-A-Flower sets: African Daisy!
Simply stamped with WOW embossing ink, and clear heat embossed made simple water coloring even simpler. It was easy to find all the right shades of color in my Altenew 36 Pan set of watercolors: Puffy Heart, Bamboo, and Forest Glades to be exact. The sentiment is also from the African Daisy set. These embossed pieces [SU] were here waiting for me in my snippets!
Hope your week has gotten off to a colorful start!
Great take from the inspiration photo!!
That inspiration photo is right up your alley...and your take on it is perfect!
Gorgeous coloring, and wow, that background texture is fabulous!
I also love that the paint colours are already mixed, takes the guess work out of it all. Glad to hear you got your plants potted but also that you found some crafty time to share with us too!
A sweet burst of color! All that’s blooming in my yard are dandelions and violets!
Colorful, and just beautiful Michele!! Love your simple water coloring and the embossed backgrounds too! Lovely, lovely card my friend!! Hugs. :0)
Nailed it!! Fabulous card, I'm diggin' the buttery yellow leaves!
These embossed flowers are so striking! And the dry embossing adds wonderful interest without bulk. Such a gorgeous card!
You nailed it! Beautiful card, my friend! Hugs!
I love these bright African Daisies, Michele! An inspiring reminder that they are patiently waiting in my NBUS box! Lovely watercoloring and your bits worked perfectly for the background!
Such pretty Spring colors for your heat embossed and watercolored African Daisy's, Michele. TFS and always inspiring me...Love and Hugs..Nancy
Beautifully done Michele...love that colorblock panel with the embossing to add such nice texture.
You always do so well with those Altenew challenges, Michele, and this is no exception. Love those bright pink daisies!
I do love all things daisy and this is perfect, such wonderful colours xx
What a pretty card and a fabulous take on the inspiration photo Michele x.
This is just gorgeous and a perfect interpretation of the inspiration. And I love that you used some snippets too!
A beautiful splash of color with the shades of green!
Lovely and bright African daisies, Michele! It's refreshing that you used green for the back panel instead of leaves!
