The Golden Wattle

Hello Everyone!  Today is Create With Me Monday over on the Flourishes Blog and I've got a tutorial on how to colour this beautiful Wattle flower image!  Of course I'm a little partial to the fluffy Wattle since it is the National Floral Emblem of Australia and also the inspiration for my username over at Splitcoaststampers!  :)

The card itself is made of Old Olive card and layered with Very Vanilla (pierced) and topped with some Kaisercraft Great Southern Land SA paper.  Over this is a piece of Kasiercraft Great Southern Land NT paper matted with Old Olive.  The flag strip is from the bottom of the same paper.  The Wattle has been stamped and coloured with Copics (see the Flourishes Blog for details).  It's been cut out with Labels 25 and matted with Old Olive cut with Labels 23.  The sentiment has been stamped and made into a double notched tag and attached across the bottom.

That's all from me today, thanks for visiting!  :)
