Watercolour Sunflower Card

Hello Friends,

Recently I cut up a sheet of water colour paper into card front sized pieces. I used my water colour pencils to make this sunflower. It was perfect for this week's colour palette at The Outlawz, which is to use the colours of the flag of Ireland.


I used a white card base and mounted my painting on green card stock. I also added a couple of of white corner pieces and a stamped, "For You".

Mounted on green card and white card base
White corner pieces added
To be honest, I wish I hadn't added the white corner pieces, but I stuck them down good with Tacky Glue. It was too late to change my mind.

If you like my painting, here is a JPEG for you to use on your own creations. Please keep the artist signature visible on it. A link to my blog would be nice, but not required. Enjoy. :)

Hugs & smiles,
Teresa
