Paper Craft Crew Challenge #183

Good Day Everyone,

Today I am posting a card based on the Color Challenge #183 over at the Paper Craft Crew Challenge Blog. I really like the sketch challenges and I thought I would try my hand at this kind of challenge. I managed to use 3 of the 4 colors displayed, I could not get the Smokey Slate in there. But I do like the way it turned out.

I started with a 4x5 piece of watercolor paper. I used my largest stamping block to stamp the bottom third of the block directly onto my Old Olive Stamp Pad. Then I stamped the rest of the block onto my Soft Sky Stamp Pad. I spritzed water onto the block and then took it to the watercolor paper. It made a nice soft background. Then I used my Lots Of Labels die to cut the shape for the background. The mat behind is cut from Lost Lagoon Cardstock. I used my Sale-A-Bration set, Flowering Fields, which I earned for free by placing a $50.00 order. I stamped the flowers in VersaMark Ink and embossed them with Stampin' Up's White Embossing Powder. Then I colored the flowers with my Aqua Painter and my Inks. Which are Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, and Old Olive. The background paper, Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper, is another free product from the Sale-A-Bration event. The sentiment banner comes from Endless Thanks and the sentiment is from Honeycomb Happiness, also a free set. The ribbon is is the Pool Party 3/8" Glitter Ribbon.
