The floral design was stamped onto a panel, then given detail with markers and a Watercolour Wonder crayon. I roughed up the edges of the panel a bit using my finger nail before sponging over it with Baja Breeze ink.
... before I added the sentiment (from Easy Events, as yesterday's card) and mounted the panel onto a card base. And there we are - a bit of quick gardening in the warm!

One plant seems to be thriving on the chilly conditions here and that's gorse. There's a gorgeous golden bush of it not far from our house which I pointed out to my daughter yesterday. "Gorse," I added thoughtfully. "I hadn't thought before what a funny word that is..." My daughter nodded agreement. "Yes, I know what you mean," she said. "Sort of halfway between 'goose' and 'horse'!" This is one of the reasons I love my daughter - no matter how silly my conversations are, she always enters enthusiastically into the spirit of them!
I'll still be in floral mood tomorrow - do come back and see!
