Muse Challenge #162 & Make It Monday #246

Today, I have a card to share for the Muse Challenge #162,
where we were encouraged to be inspired by this lovely card by Tracey McNeely:
 
 
Isn't it pretty?
I decided to make my card using my PTI Colour Pop Florals kit:
 

I diecut the flowers from the patterned papers from the kit and adhered them
to my card over some Wplus9 Happy Wishes stamped leaves.

 
I stamped my sentiment (from PTI's Wet Paint) in lovely lady and tropical teal.
Then, I pressed some raspberry fix ink onto my acrylic block and painted
it over my sentiment with a paintbrush and water for this week's
It turned out a little too pink to match perfectly with the flower diecut in my bouquet,
so I went over the whole word with some berry sorbet, water and a paintbrush.

Thanks for looking!

Awesome take on Tracey's card! Those flowers are bright and Springy, and I love what you've done with your sentiment. I am going to have to pull out this sentiment set, and give this a go. Really a pretty card. Love that turquoise base too. Have a wonderful week. Bev

Fabulous rainbow of floral colour, and a great job with the MIM technique! The leafy image from the WPlus9 set pairs beautifully with the PTI flower images/dies too.
