Loving Nature with Botanical Blooms

Welcome back, after a lovely day spent in the Mt Lofty botanical gardens last weekend I am feeling in touch with nature with the amazing Botanical Blooms Bundle



When I saw the colour challenge at The Paper Players and the theme for the Global Design Project I immediately drew from the inspiration of the autumn colours of the Botanical Gardens



 

I've used Sponge Daubers to add colour the flowers, I mixed and matched Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie, and oh  my, how amazing is the result - the flowers are so intense and bursting with colour.  The veins on the flowers are added using an Aqua Painter.


I also cut some of the leaves from Pumpkin Pie and stamped and sponged with Mossy Meadow to get a lovely autumn hue for the leaves, also adding sponging to the larger leaves cut from Mossy Meadow and used my Bone Folder to curl the petals and leaves to give added depth and dimension.

I've used One Big Meaning for the sentiment for this card - this is such a lovely set, one of my favourites
