Time Out #57 - Inspired by Words Challenge

"May all your weeds be wildflowers"
What a beautiful sentiment!  That's the inspiration for our current Time Out challenge.

I received this great stamp set and matching dies from my good friend Cheryl for my birthday last month. I just had to use them for this challenge.  I stamped this swag of flowers on watercolor paper in Versafine onyx black ink and embossed it with clear powder.  Then I for the first time used my Kuretake watercolors to color it.  I matched the colors to the pattern paper, mixing some to get the colors I needed.  I die cut the swag and mounted it on dimensional tape, added the sentiments, and sequins.  I love this color palette.  
I used this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches as my starting point. 
Our challenge is sponsored by Clearly Besotted Stamps, and they are giving a £15 evoucher to the winner of this challenge!
