a bouquet of flowers 'Hello'

First you don't hear from me for days then I hit you twice on the one night. I was just checking the blogs and saw that the Simon Says - tied up was about to end. I had painted these flowers earlier today so time to use them.

Better move it cause there was only an hour to go about 30 minutes ago.

 All flowers and jar are die cut, white embossed on watercolour paper and painted with very light coats of Peerless and added to as each layer dried.

Placed on a patterned piece of paper (yes it looks like wallpaper again). becoming an obsession, we don't have any here so most be subconscious.

Anyway heres the card

I lacked time today but I intend to add a bit of blurry green to infer the wallpaper behind. will take a photo and add if you feel like coming back tomorrow.

did a pile of the roses, daisies, leaves and hydrangeas  so it was just a matter of mix and match till I felt they were right.
Filled in the white embossed 'Hello' that is on the jar with a silver Uniball pen.

Tied multi coloured twine around the top of the jar as The jar is a gift for someone.

Posted with 30 minutes to spare - whoop forgot one photo- close up

Okay best to post it now:

thanks for coming to visit and I hope you come again.

This is very pretty. I like the colours of the flowers and they look great in the jar. Also neat idea where you placed the sentiment.
