I wanted to create a very full bouquet of flowers that would cover most of the card front. I stamped multiples of each flower and leaf sprigs using Catherine Pooler inks. I have found her ink pads to be great for stamping large solid images. I started assembling the bouquet by laying down the greenery first in a starburst like shape. I then just starting layering the flowers on top. I wanted the arrangement to be very organic and somewhat loose. Much like you would get if you were picking wildflowers out of a garden and building the bouquet as you picked.
I did add a little bit of white and dark gray splatters to the flowers. It's subtle but still adds a lot of detail and interest. The sentiment - Just a note to brighten you day - is from another new HB set called Rainy Day and the hello die cut is from a stand alone die set called Gallery Frame die #1.
