Pretty Pansies and Waterdroplets

Hello everyone, I hope you enjoyed the weekend.

I have a design today in a favourite colour combination using Design by Ryn's pretty Pansies and her new amazing Sideways Droplets along with Raindrops set.   I think I was dreaming about summer while creating this, it's been dreary here this past week.


The background is Dylusions Inks and Gold Glimmermist.   I stenciled using Design by Ryn's Maidenhair Fern with several Distress Inks and Gold Brilliance ink which gave a neat effect but hard to see in the photo.   I stamped the Pansies several times, coloured with Tombow markers, cut them out and arranged as shown. The matting and stamping is navy not black as it appears. The quote is by Impression Obsession - C3671.

Designs by Ryn now sells her stamps in unmounted sheets at her website and also at retailers around the world.    You can still buy mounted individual stamps at her website.

Thanks for your visit and have a great day,
Shirleyx

Hey Shirley :) I love this one so much! It all comes together so beautifully! The little rhinestones at the centres of the pansies, the way that you cut them out and placed them together to look like a bunch instead of a repeated pattern, the colours of course - beautifully lush and of course the way you used the water effects. Thank you so so much!!!!!!!

Oh! And one more thing... Lol. I could keep going ;) really love the subtle placement of Maidenhair Fern in there!!!

This is so pretty Shirley. I love the maidenhair fern stencilling in the background and Ryn's oh so realistic water drops, and then the way you have grouped the pansies which look as though they have a little sparkle on the middles which is gorgeous. x

That quote is a fav of mine...so simple and so powerful all at once!
Your card with it's universal green is so fresh and pretty Shirley.
Sending sunny (((hugs))) from Virginia (the bottom drops out later in the week with chilly chilly temps) enjoying some sun while it lasts...

Hi, Shirley! Wouldn't it be amazing if flowers poured forth every time we laughed? LOL I wonder what kinds of flowers I would laugh out? LOL Beautiful card, and I especially love the colors in the fern background. Can pansies grow up there in the winter? I just planted 24 snap dragons and have another 24 to go - and will likely purchase more LOL hugs, de

Wow, this is stunning Shirley. Beautiful colours and gorgeous pansies. I've not really looked to closely at the stencils yet, but I love the fern one you've used on this card.
