Pansies are for Loving Thoughts

Good afternoon, peeps!  I'm a bit later than planned with today's flowers from the wonderful new Victorian Florals Collection by wor Sheena.  This collection is being launched in the Weekender Event on Create and Craft TV this Saturday and Sunday.  At the moment the show times are:

Saturday - 0.00 a.m., 12.00 and 6.00 p.m.
Sunday - 11.00 a.m., 2.00 and 7.00 p.m.

Today I've chosen the Pansies, a flower that I love so I looked up the meaning of the flower and it represents 'loving thoughts'......aaah!  There's probably not enough of those around......anyhoo, on with the artwork:

For this card, my pansies are the purple and yellow variety and I thought I'd create a background for them using the Daisy Chain Border embossing folder, which I painted with Spectrum Noir Aquatints then faux bleached the colour out of the daisies and just painted the centres yellow.  The pansies on both of these cards are also painted with the Aquatints.

This card has the same flowers but a very different look and colour scheme:

The background for this one was created with Distress Inks and then 'splatted' with water and blotted to remove the colour.  I also used Forest Moss Distress Ink to sponge through the Shady Meadow Stencil.

Well, I hope you've enjoyed today's loving thoughts from me and I'll see you again tomorrow - only two more sleeps before the shows start!

Thank you for looking today.
