I sure had a lot of fun with this stamp set!

I started by stamping the image from Country Flowers using Memento Ink and watercoloring the flowers. I used the Pearlescent Watercolors and some of the Jade Nuance Watercolor Powder.  I just love how easy these products are to work with!

Next, I made my background using the Lace Technique and sticker paper!  Simply, I removed the adhesive backing on the Sticker Paper and carefully laid down my lace.  I sprinkled on the Ice Embossing Powder, removing the excess.  I then carefully removed the lace and quickly sprinkled on Aqua Marine Glitter.  I lightly tapped to remove the excess glitter, then heat set.  It made a really cool background!  I then added on some Hyacinth Glitter and rubbed it in, accenting that lace design even more.

I die cut out my colored image and matted using a purple background.  I also used a purple background for my lace paper. I took 2 strips of Tear-ific Tape and used Hyacinth Glitter to make a ribbon in the background behind my image.  I stamped the image onto watercolor paper again and painted 2 flowers, fussy cutting them out.  I used the Sakura Glue Pen to add some Hyacinth Glitter to the centers, then popped them up with Foam Squares. 

To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment using Versamark Ink and used Black Detail Embossing Powder to highlight it. I then took my Pure Platinum Embellishment Mousse, and using my finger, applied as an accent/highlight to my card and sentiment. I just love this stuff!


I'm really happy how this card turned out!  Up next on our blog hop you will find Eret and you can find her blog here.
