The Card Concept Challenge #54

Hello everyone! We’ve got a gorgeous inspiration photo this week over at The Card Concept right here: http://thecardconcept.blogspot.com/

I just fell in love with these cascading lilacs in the galvanized steel bucket! I experimented with different kinds of flowers until I found the pretty Small Hydrangea Blooms from Poppystamps. I die cut dozens and dozens of tiny little petals, burnished them for dimension, glued them all together, then pinched each one into a tight cone shape, then added them into my “bucket” to create my own lilacs.

The background was created by painting watercolor paper in shades of green and emerald, then cutting it into nine grid squares. Lately, I’ve been making a collection of watercolor painted grid backgrounds, I love the technique so much! I added a few more finishing touches for my Fusion Collage card.
