Beauty in Nature

I am working today with Art Neko's Framed Bird on Gourd Vine on Gourd Vine stamp, which I watercoloured using Zig Brushes. I read that the Gourd Vines associated with the yellow flowers are usually annual plants which are rather bitter. But I loved the idea of the yellow flowers for my card. I thought using the Zig brushes was best as they are perfect for detailed stamps such as this stamp. I matted my image using Bazzill cardstock in colours that I used in the watercolour, and then added Hemp Cord. I think the darker cardstock against the orange cardstock brings out the colours beautifully. I embossed my bottom panel for added texture to my card and attached my image on foam strips. I hope you enjoy my card today.

Love the colors and embossing on this card, Kia. The orange and blue go great together.
