Green White Space and the Beauty of Dicentra

Hello.  Welcome.  A lovely inspiration photo over at the Stamplorations Cutplorations challenge.  Dicentra is one of my favourite flowers.  I love those dangly little heart shaped flowers. 

Keeping it clean with lots of green space.  The base card is green hammered card which I added some Mowed Lawn distress ink to to highlight the texture.  I cut a scrap of watercolour paper coloured with Brusho's using two of the Stamplorations Stitched Snowy Hill dies.  I cut Stamplorations Clustered Heart die from a scrap of white paper and coloured it with Picked Raspberry distress ink.  I wanted the bottom of the hearts to remain white, to reflect the colouring in the Dicentra flowers, so I used my waterbrush to add colour at the top and draw it down the die cut.  The happy birthday is a goldline sticker.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
