Inspired by…#22

I’m so happy that the Inspired by All the Little Things challenge is back; it has become one of my favorite challenges in the short time that I’ve been making cards. This week the inspiration photo is a beautiful painting of sunflowers:

I was inspired by the colors and the paint strokes. Here is my take:

I used the By Your Side Bird die from Concord and 9th to cut out a template to transfer to watercolor paper. Then I painted the scene with goauche paints, since they go on a bit more opaquely than watercolors. I tried to mimic the brush strokes, which is tricky with goauche, it turns out! Then I stamped the Thanks sentiment from Give Thanks set, also from C9.

Then, as I was trying to take photos, Miss Monkey decided to photobomb the set. She does love birdies.
