Anna Wight's Wildflower Silhouettes

Another Anna card tonite, done with Anna Wight's new Whippersnapper cling set release, called "Wildflower Silhouette". I toned down the colors a bit and went more elegant with the paper, using a scrolly damask patterned paper by Fancy Pants. I used my Stampin Up Watercolor markers to color directly onto the rubber, starting with some simple celery green ink for the greenery for my background. Then I went bolder with blues, yellows and bursts of red, stamping various flowers from Anna's set. I just kept adding flowers until it seemed balanced to me, and meadow-y. I glimmer misted over the entire image again, using "Pearl" color glimmer mist, lightly spritzing using wide quick sprays across the paper. The sentiment is from Whipper's "Blooming Expressions" set.

Really great card, everything, great colors and I really like the balance of the card as well with the sentiment break and then a little more of the blue patterned paper. Well done!
