It's absolutely impossible to get a good picture of this - the flowers are Fantasy Fibre, so they shimmer and are different every way you look at them, and the background is Twinkling H2Os so it shimmers too. I'll try a photo tomorrow when my batteries are charged again, but doubt I'll do better than this scan.
It was for Beate's BIC #10. http://beate.blogs.splitcoaststamper...-challenge-10/ I just loved the picture, it reminded me of impressionist paintings, light and airy and soft. I can't paint for toffee, so I just used very thin H20s and a very soft large brush to paint some watercolour paper for the background. I stamped the flowers with Brilliance Moonlight White onto various combinations of Fantasy Fibre, and cut them out. They came out just like I wanted- in some lights they are white and silvery and shimmery. I had no yellow brads, so I dipped white ones in Brilliance Sunshine Yellow and embossed them with clear powder. Having stuck the flowers on I drew the stems with a Marvy Marker, and the grass at the bottom with H2Os and an aqua-painter. I mounted it onto green Bazzill and sponged the edges with white, and then onto blue Bazzill Bling, and then onto white linen-texture card. I used one of the rub-ons from SAB.
I thought I had some white-on-white polka dot organza ribbon. My DH will be happy I didn't because he doesn't like ribbon on cards :D.
