every moment...

Hello friends!!  After a trip to our local zoo today with my boys (they are on spring break), my sister and her girls I got a chance to make a card for this week's PTI Make It Monday challenge.  I combined it with the current Dynamic Duos challenge (Gumball Green and your choice) and came up with this:

 
After finally finding a PTI stamp set that I could use for the MIM challenge (Botantical Silhouettes) I got out my Gelatos and got to work.  I used Gelatos in two different shades of orange unfortunately after spritzing the stamp with water and then stamping you can't really tell I used two.  The stems were stamped using SU!'s Gumball Green.  I rubbed some green Gelato onto on of my acrylic blocks, spritzed it with water and then stamped it at the bottom to ground the flowers.  Some New Leaf double stitched ribbon and the sentiment finished things off.  The card base is SU!'s Smoky Slate.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white, SU! Smoky Slate; Stamps:  PTI; Ink:  SU! and Memento; Farber Castell Gelatos (orange, blood orange & green); PTI double stitched ribbon

Very pretty! I used the same stamp set....it just screams watercolor to me. I really like the bow and where you put the sentiment too.

Beautiful bow, Rosemary. And, the flowers do show a bit of shading with your watercolor technique. Lovely card.
