Today's card was made using SU's Inspired by Nature. I love the wonderful floral images. Purple Cone flowers are in my garden and I love them. I colored the images with markers and then huffed on them. The flowers were colored with red rose, the the tops with chocolate chip and touched with orange. The leaves and stems were inked up with always artichoke. I stamped the sentiment with chocolate chip, mounted it on Rose Red added a couple of brads and chocolate chip grosgrain. Although you can't see it very well in the picture, I used the faux tearing technique and wheeled the watercolor vine wheel over it in chocolate chip. Hope you enjoy.

This morning I had a little fun trying Beate's SCS tutorial, faux tearing. I used an image from Ageless Adornment that I had watercolored while at my sister's cottage up in Perth, ON. Before we went, I stamped a whole mess of images on watercolor paper and just took my aqua painter and markers along with me. My DD Lindsay and I had a blast painting away one rainy day.
Anyway, I also used Flannel Plaid for the faux tearing part and the sentiment is from Many Merry Messages. I used Old Olive for the base, More Mustard for the background and Cranberry Crisp, Old Olive for the layers. Added a little burgandy grosgrain and it was done.
