"Newton's Daydream"

My card sample is a combination of paper piecing stamped images and a
bit of watercoloring.  I first stamped the image onto solid orange patterned paper and then
shaded the edges with Faber-Castell's #117 and #121 Aquarelles.

I stamped the image again onto white cardstock (for the flowers), light blue cardstock
(for the background) and the green floral print (for the foreground).  
The card base was embossed with a bee embossing folder by LifeStyle Crafts...
I thought it would be the perfect compliment for the little bee stamp!
