Cornflower 1

When people ask me "What is your favourite flower?", I find it impossible to give one answer! There are so many I love ... Delphiniums, Sweat Peas, Roses, Lavender, Hydrangeas, Freesias, Bougainvillea .... and Cornflowers. I had such a lovely garden of Cornflowers last spring.

So for today, I will pick cornflowers ...

I used Distress Inks : Chipped Sapphire with a little Black Soot and Pine Needles to make my watercolour background. 

It might have been difficult to work out where the washi was ! So you can see it was the cornflower. I love this washi!

I paired it with the cornflower die cut.

My entry to ...

  1. Your cornflowers were so bright and pretty, Janet! And your card is awesome! Love the cornflower die cut and Washi tape and how you've used them! This is going in my CASE file! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Amazing CAS design, love it Janet! Thanks for joining in our tic-tac-toe challenge at Die Cut Divas.

  3. What a gorgeous CAS card!! the watercolor wash in the background looks amazing to frame that delicate corn flower die cut. Love how you cut that beautiful washi tape and added it to your design, the colors on the flowers are just like the ones on the background, just so lovely.
    This card is CAS perfection.
    Thank you for sharing with us at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE.
    Stay healthy and safe.

  7. WOW! Gorgeous card. Just love the CAS design and colors. This really deserves another WOW! So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas for our Tic Tac Toe challenge.

  8. What a pretty card! Thanks for the hint of where the washi was - if you hadn't mentioned it, I would not have guessed that the cornflower was washi. Beautiful clean and simple card. Thanks for joining us at Die Cut Divas.
