I am a great fan of Essentials by Ellen products and their store. When I saw their Calling all artists special challenge at The classroom I could not help myself and I had to give a try.
So here is my card I used Essentials by Ellen - bohemian garden for the background and the sentiment is from Mondo Magnolia both stamp sets are by Julie Ebersole. I love her monday videos. I stamped the flowers and leaves on a watercolors paper using distress ink and then using a paintbrush and water I colored them. Splattered peacock feathers distress ink and I gold embossed the sentiment and fussy cut it. Used Coats metallic gold thread around the sentiment. For the background I used one of my favorite brands My Favorite Things square grid cover up background dienamics.
Used both the negative and positive pieces of diecuts for the background. Closer look at the background flowers and leaves and the gold embossed sentiment.
