Picking Flowers

The Verve October inspiration photo is absolutely loaded with potential!  The vintage metal canisters with the multi-hued bouquets against the white background caught my eye, and it was fun to "pick flowers" from several Verve sets.  The arrangement contains blooms from Kindness Matters, Beautiful Things, and Autumn Blessings.  All the flowers and leaves are colored with watercolor pencils and a water brush.  Before cleaning the green from the water brush, I used the residual color to splatter some fine drops around the flowers.  The sentiment is from Poppy Birthday, also by Verve.

I am blessed to work with a wonderful team of teachers and two of them have birthdays next week.  I am excited about sharing this card and making the other this weekend.
