Because Card using a floral image from Rachel Vass

Check out this amazing flower drawn by Rachel and coloured by me. I coloured with copics
and added quite a bit of yellow to my pink mix. I just love how this turned out, not worrying about where shadows and highlights should be just going with the feel.

I then cut the image out by hand as I was trying to decide exactly how to display to its best. I went with of all things a bright background made from yellows and oranges Distress Oxides added in layers and dried between each layer. Although the flower is ultra bright it works with the background.

I felt a little white was needed and thought of adding some embossing paste but decided on this die cut piece that reminds me of a part piece of white fencing or wire, it just worked perfectly. The sentiment well because it could be ' because It's your birthday' Because I love you' ' Because I wanted to say thanks etc.

So dont forget to go check out the rest of Rachel's graphics  on Etsy under Rachel Vass Designs and get ready to see more of these beauties around the place. Congratulations Rachel You have drawn one beauty here.
