winnie & walter share the love day 5

happy friday and happy day 5 of the winnie & walter share the love week featuring essentials by ellen. today's awesome challenge is to use an amazing mood board compiled by winnie & walter's shay as inspiration. here's the moodboard:
i was totally inspired by the black & white stripes, bright pinks & oranges, gold and of course, flowers! here is the card i created:
i started by stamping flowers on smooth bristol in distress ink colors to coordinate with the clean color markers i planned to use for no-line watercoloring. 
i applied masks over my flowers and then painted wide stripes with distress ink black soot.

i removed my masks and colored my flowers with clean color markers.

then i added a few highlights to flowers with a toner pen and ran it through my laminator with gold foil.

i trimmed the panel down, wrapped a little bit of gold thread around the top and added "hello" cut from gold foil paper.
thanks for stopping by and i hope you have played along with the fun challenges this week too!

xo,
carly
