Hello stampers! Today's card is for Create with Connie and Mary's sketch challenge #594. I also used inspiration from Casing the Catty challenge #260 by casing the colors from the Peaceful Poppies suite. I used Poppy Parade, Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive, and Pool Party.
I started by stamping a flower image from Bloom and Grow in Versamark ink onto watercolor paper and embossed it with shimmery black embossing powder. I colored the image with my aquapainter and ink pads. I paid homage to Dena Rekow by splatting my image by flicking the tip of my black stampin' write marker with the lid. Just watch a few of her YouTube videos and you are bound to see the technique! I like the look it adds!
For the background elements I die cut my Flirty Flamingo panel with my stitched lace die, backed it with Whisper White, and then layered it on black. I ran the Poppy Parade piece through the big shot with my Country Floral EF. The whole thing is mounted on a black base. The sentiment is from Well Said.
