My Folk Art Painting

I went a bit mad today and uploaded two cards.  It was sunny and warm again, so I went into the garden to paint some of my planters that were looking tired and needed some fresh painted flowers and roses.  I have never painted onto cards before, I usually like to paint onto a larger canvas.  But I gave it a go and my little spray didn't turn out too bad.  So I may just try it again.  I coated a piece of card with pale green acrylic, then gave it a coat of sealant.  When that had dried I painted my leaves first, then the rose buds and finally the daisies.  Paper is from Pink Petticoat, ribbon from stash, and the sentiment is one from Hot of the Press.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend!
