Etsy Inspired #42

This week's Etsy Inspired Challenge #42 focuses on photography by Tony Carlisle. He is a nature photographer and I really enjoyed his work. My inspiration in this photo. Since I've done lots of butterfly cards lately, I used the flower for my inspiration.

This card is done with markers, direct to rubber, then spritzed and stamped on watercolor paper. The flower stamp is by A Country Welcome and it's sort of my go-to stamp when I want something solid and bold. The sentiment is pre-printed vellum.

To me, this card is all about the image and the pretty colors, so I wanted to keep the embellishments simple. (I tried ribbon first, but I didn't like the way it looked, so I decided a few simple pearls and piercing would do the trick.)
