Watercolor flowers

Hello! I'm back with a card covering two more challenges. First off it's the "frame" challenge over at The Paper Players and Just Us Girls has a color challenge out. I just bought this flower stamp at Ben Franklin's and thought it would work great for both these challenges.

The stamp is from Stampendous and I stamped it Archival Jet Black ink onto distress watercolor paper from Ranger.

I used three of the colors from the JUGS challenge, pink, yellow and lime green. Gelatos were used and smeared around with a bit of water to get the effect. Added some white liquid pearls to the center of the flowers.

Sentiment is from Technique Tuesday. To frame this up, I used two of the stitched rectangle dies from Lil' Inker Designs on watercolor paper then added some tiny square pieces of foam tape onto the back.

OK, that's it for today. Off to finish up my Sunday chores.

Thanks for stopping by!
