More Fifth Avenue Flora Watercolors

I really love this technique of watercoloring so much I made a whole sheet of these flowers which was really easy to color. I then used the leaves from God's beauty set to stamp the leaves in artichoke on white CS and used the aqua painter to make the
color "bleed" to our advantage this time and this is what you get. I love the flowers in the silver mint julep cups like they do in the south and with all the ciecut flowers in the flowerpot cards I've seen I thought this was a prettier version. Use a silver cardstock and fold it over and tape the edges to make a pocket. I scored grooves in it before taping to make it look more like the mint julep cups. Use dimensionals to raise up the flowers so it hangs over the cup. I put clear microbeads using tombow multipurpose glue on the center of the blue flowers.

This is the same flower cut out and leaves this time stamped onto the white topnote diecut. I cut out another to mount with dimensionals.

In this one I used the beautiful white organza ribbon to make the leaf accent. I used texture plates the create polka dots on the bottom of the CS- although hard to see and pink pirouette CS to make the scallop outside and regal rose on the white oval inside

This is just lovely. Love the coloring on the flowers and the silver sets it off. It reminds me of the silver buckets with flowers which I just love. I know you called it a mint cup, so please forgive me. It looks great!!!
