Pool Blossom ~ CCMC448, SIP89

It's time for another Create with Connie and Mary Challenge!  This week it's color. I also used the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #89 to help me create my card.
I keep going back to my love of watercoloring!  I fussy cut the flower out....I know, I know, it has a coordinating punch, but I like the way you can get closer to the edge by fussy cutting.  I stamped some textures onto the circle and then used my auquapainter to "bleed" the color out a bit.
I finished up the flower and leaves by adding some wink of stella (see picture below).

I used the plenty of petals EF to make this wonderful textured background.  I also added a little interest to the smokey slate strip by stamping the little cluster of flowers from Birthday Blossoms in Smokey Slate ink.  I also stamped the same flowers in the corners of the Chocolate Chip card base.  It's very subtle.
I finished this one off with a bit of vanilla satin ribbon and also some linen thread.

I hope you can join us in the challenge this week!  
Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!



  1. So pretty! I wouldn't have thought of using Smoky Slate for the leaves but you made them so beautiful and perfect. Lots of details that add up to a fantastic card.

  2. Talk about texture! Love all the different ones from the watercolor paper to the embossed card stock to the linen thread to the satin worked it all beautifully!

  3. I love watercoloring too....I just don't do enough of it! This pretty little floral is gorgeous! Love the neutral background you created for your circular element...really makes the flower pop! Thanks for playing with our SIP sketch this week!

  4. Beautifully done. I have tried my hand at watercoloring, and just can't quite get the knack for it. Your pretty flower makes me want to keep trying. :) Also, I am glad I am not the only one who fussy cuts things they have a punch or die for......I thought it was just me!! lol Thanks for joining us at Stamp, Ink, Paper!!
