Hello...Gorgeous

Here is Today's project....
Today's project was inspired by the wonderful Mood Board at The Ton..
I was inspired by the wonderful collection of flowers and the heart shape....
I was also drawn towards the photo of the sea and the sky.
This was my starting point....
I tried to create the beautiful colours, using mica sprays......
Graduating from the pinks and the lilac of the sky
to the blues and  turquoise of the sea.
I stamped the gorgeous Anemone stamp in the top left 
and also onto watercolour card.
Fussy cut the anemone's and water coloured with pigment powders.

The Summer Blooms stamp has been stamped on the bottom 
and water coloured with pigment powders.
I have stamped in white heat embossing to represent the white surf.

The mini Peony cluster set has been stamped onto a  small MDF heart.

I finished off with the Love die cut sentiment 
and silver heat embossing around the edge of the hearts. 
The sprays and some of the pigment powders have produced the prettiest of shine, 
which hopefully you can see?
I hope I have re-created the sky and the sea in the inspiration photo, 
along with the gorgeous flowers?
Thank you so much for finding time to stop by.

I am popping my Heart Creation over to 
The July Challenge at The Ton....
Update...I was lucky to get a Honourable Mention...
Thank you so much x

WOW WOW WOW, this is just gorgeous Mac! I am so in love with the colour palette here, all those soft pastels! The white resist is so beautiful, it adds a lovely contrast that is still subtle. Your flowers are so dimensional and the heart with the sentiment is beautiful. My favourite detail is the addition of the metallic silver accents, absolutely breathtaking! Well done!! hugs :)
