Speed challenge!

Hiya!

I had a couple of hours to play with this afternoon and I stumbled across the Flourishes Speed challenge using a fab sketch so I decided to play along. I combined the sketch with this week's Colour Q challenge and came up with this:


I used Flourishes' Gerbera Daisy set as well as a sentiment from another of their sets (I realised that Mothers' Day is coming up soon and although my mum is in Australia so won't need one until May, my mother-in-law is here so I need to get one sorted!). The daisies were stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with SU markers and an aqua brush - I added some sparkle to the centres of the flowers using Stickles. The DSPs are from retired stash as is the ribbon. I added a couple of buttons and some fauz stitching with a marker to finish.

Thanks for stopping by!
