Pollen, the Essence of Nature?

There's been a pollen boom here which have affected many allergics. I tried to catch it in a card with three colours; yellow, green and purple. The pics are just dreadful, the card stock is actually white.

Challenges:
One Layer Simplicity: Fabulous Flowers
Less Is More: Three colours (or three shades of a colour)
Cute Card Thursday: Here Comes Summer
Penny Black Saturday Challenge: Favourite Penny Black stamp

You can see the original green and yellow here.
I used:
Penny Black stamp, coloured with Aqua Markers, spritzed with water and stamped directly on card stock
Liquid pearls
Chocolate Baroque sentiment stamped with Distress ink
Enjoy the rest of the weekend sweeties, thank you for visiting! Oh, by the way, what do you think, should I attend a class with Frank Garcia? He's coming to Stockholm.

Warm hugs
Maarit

  7. Love the watercolor flowers! Our pollen was terrible but didn't last as long as it does some times.
