Fresh Friday Flower - FMS40 & FM63

This card is for Freshly Made Sketches 40 & The Friday Mashup 63.

The Friday Mashup calls for using Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, & Pool Party and paper piecing.  I chose not to do the paper piecing part because I wanted to focus on watercoloring the challenge colors on the flower. 

I used a my pool party marker on watercolor paper and blended the ink with my blender pen.  I used my rich razzleberry marker at the ends of the flower and blended it down into the pool party.  I love the effect it gives!  And, just like the sample flower, I made the center yellow.  I fussy cut the flower and spayed it with champagne shimmer mist.

I chose to not add any leaves or stems with this flower because I wanted it to be the star of the show. 
Here's a list of supplies I used.....
Stamps: Fabulous Florets
Paper: Pool Party CS & DP, Rich Razzleberry, Vanilla, Watercolor paper
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, Black Stazon
Accessories: Labels die, Large Oval die, Framelits Labels die, Daffodil Delight Seam Binding ribbon, Champagne Shimmer mist, Vintage Wallpaper EF, Basic Rhinestones
Thanks for taking a peek!
