If you asked me a favorite place to be in all the places you could ever be….I would say in a field of flowers. I feel so peaceful with flowers all around. In fact, a favorite place to visit is the Flower Fields in California (in April or May). It it just amazing!! (Read my post about it here).
So it seemed perfectly natural to build a card around that idea. Have you ever thought of throwing flowers as a sort of celebration? Well, it sounds like fun, and that’s just what these little cuties are doing:
See all the flowers in the background? The sky is just filled with flowers! I was going for an Ombre look with my watercolored sky, but it didn’t turn out exactly as I imagined. That’s the beauty of watercoloring….it’s completely unpredictable!
I white embossed those flowers first onto watercolor paper, then applied the color. I also watercolored those gals (from Mama Elephant “In My Heart”) and I think they turned out so cute!
For the “happy,” I first watercolored some paper with greens, yellow and blues, then cut out the word. As you can see, I didn’t get much of the blues in there, but I like the variation of greens and yellows here…it kinda goes with the grassy hill.
I think this little scene would also go well with the sentiment from “Up and Away” that says: Spread Happiness Wherever you go. I just might add that to the inside of the card.
