These new frame sets from Verve are just gorgeous, aren't they? I especially love the bluebells in this this one (Framed Florals set)! For my card, I started by creating a watercolor wash for the background. I wanted it to have a softer look, so I added a vellum layer over it. For the focal image, I used some more watercolors to color in the bluebells. I kept my embellishments to a minimum so as not to take away from the flowers. :-)
Ready for more inspiration? The super sweet and talented Janelle is next on the hop!
Thanks so much for stopping by! ~Laurie
