I couldn't wait to get home and paint a matching card to go with it:
To make the background appear bluish like the bag, I, first, smeared some Tim Holtz distress ink onto the background - Broken China. I let it dry, and then proceeded to start painting the florals on top of it. Some of the leaves on the bag are a super, dark green and almost blackish, I rarely use deep purple and black together so I wasn't sure how this would turn out on paper.....but I went for it anyway....
All that was used was black, white, a touch of yellow, dark green, light green, purple blue, lavender, and deep purple.
The only things stamped was a butterfly and the sentiment - from a very old W9Plus set.
Had some leftover cardstock and made another card.....this second one did not have to match exactly like the bag so I went for more of a freestyle design but used all the same colors:
Oh, and if you want that bag up above - and there is an assortment of other beautiful, watercolor bags as well - at TJ Maxx (if you have one in your area)....go now, before they are all gone....they ranged from about $1.29 to $2.79, somewhere around there, super pretty!!
Have a beautiful weekend! Cheers! xo
