3 Little girls wearing gray

What difference does a sketch make? Using the same stamps and coloring technique, and similar embellishments and paper I made 3 similar but different cards using the following 3 sketches.
I was inspired by this photo inspiration by

 My SCS694 card

My Viva la Verve -April 2018 card.

And my Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 - #135 card.

I went mixed media with my style for these cards. I know that is a shocker.
From the photo of the blue dress with a gray branch with pink flowers, I was inspired to watercolor the dresses of the little girls using grays. I watercolored the sky blue and using burned glue technique I made the flowers pink. If you will remember the other day I used this same image and colored the flowers blue. I also added cheesecloth and tulle to the cards inspired by the tulle look of the dress material. I also added some hand quilled pink roses.
This photo shows a close up look of the flowers.

As a last touch, I added diamond glitter to the little butterflies. It is hard to photograph, but I tried to show you it in this next photo.

I hope you have a blessed day and that you  have enjoyed reading about my three little girls wearing gray.
