Welcome back to Inspiration Wednesday and today sees the release of the stunning Iris Garden collection. Irises make such a statement in the garden with their vibrant yellows and purples don’t you think. This collection features dimensional flowers and and a stunning image that is just perfect to colour. Today I am sharing a card that I have made using the floral image that has been painted with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers. I have created more dimension in the image by colouring several images and die cutting the flowers out separately to create more depth to the image.
