Lupins and Convulvulus

Warning - Sunglasses might be needed for this card!

I think I got a bit carried away with the bright blue but I did enjoy colouring all those flowers in.

When I got the stamp there were loads of Convolvulus out in flower where I walk Maya. 

They were mainly large white ones but there were also some dinky ones with a pale pink edge. However, after a quick Google, I found some gorgeous tricolour ones with a lovely blue edge and yellow centre. They looked much more fun to colour in, so that's what mine are based on. I'm not sure if that's what they're meant to be, as there were lots of variations from the DT, but that's what mine are. :)

I used my new Spectrum Noir pencils (love them!) for the colouring. I did the centres yellow, then went around the edge with blue and softened it with a blender pencil. This and the cutting out took a while!

The Stone Wall stencil was run through my Ebosser (another new toy that I'm loving) and then coloured with Distress Ink and Clarity stencil brushes. The flowers were then stuck on with Pinflair gel to give them some dimension.

It needed something at the top so I stamped the "I'm Sorry" sentiment in Archival black. I added a little swirl to the ends and a couple of birds to finish it off.
