Ellen Hutson May Pin-sights challenge

I'm so excited to be to be participating in May's Pin-sights challenge over at Ellen Hutson. 
The pin-sights challenge is a monthly challenge based on a Pinterest inspired mood board.
One lucky winner will get  $50 to spend at Ellen Hutson.
Please be sure to use Essentials by Ellen products  and the mood board to qualify.


Here is the inspiration picture. 
There is so much to choose from ...that's why I have two cards :)

For my first card i as inspired by the use of patterned paper in the bottom right corner.
I have used paper from Lawn fawn.
I splashed some gold perfect pearls mixed with water onto the patterned paper for some extra detail.

I have die cut the wild garden dis all in white and love how it make them really pop from the paper.
To keep the look quite bright with plenty of white I used a white die cut frame.
Once everything was adhered in place I stamped the sentiment from bold blooms onto the patterned paper.
The card is finished with some gold stickles and some sequins.

My next card as mostly inspired by all of the colours of the flowers. 
I also wanted to use some of the gold and wood craft from the inspiration photo.

I water coloured my panel with Peerless water colours.
Once dry I added some splashes of gold perfect pearls mixed with water.
Then stamped my sentiment from fancy thanks in black archival ink.

I die cut the water colour panel and placed onto a white scalloped panel.
Using the Wild garden dies next, I cut from balsa wood, glitter card and gold card. 
Again i finished with some sequins.

You can find items I used by following the links.

I hope you join in the fun at Ellen Hutson.
Thanks for looking.
