Hey!! Popping in with a card for the current Color Throwdown challenge and since I embossed the sentiment I will post it to the current Flower challenge, as well. Using another new stamp set that I recently got from Stampin Up! This one is called Tranquil Tulips and has a watercolor look to it. So I stamped the images on watercolor paper with distress inks (Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry for the flowers and Mowed Lawn for the leaves) and then blended the colors out with water. Before stamping the dark shade of pink I let the light value dry so that things didn't get to muddy looking. Once the flowers were dry I added a light wash of Old Paper distress ink to the background. The panel was trimmed down and then adhered to a panel of dark gray cardstock at an angle. The sentiment (also from Stampin Up!) was embossed in white on vellum and then die cut with an MFT Fishtail Flag Stax die. I adhered the flag and then wrapped the panels with light pink twine before adhering it to the white cardstock base.
