delightful...

Hello!!  Our wet and rainy weekend is coming to a close and it will turn into a rainy week!  Found some time this morning to make a card for a couple of challenges... ColourQ and Where Creativity Meets C9 - Sparkle and Shine.   I pulled out my C9 Brushed Blossom stamps and the coordinating die and did a little watercoloring.  I stamped the images on watercolor cardstock and then blended the colors out with a little bit of water.  To get more depth to the color of the flower I used my MISTI to add more of the rust color and then blended it out a bit.  Once that was finished I added the sentiment and then stamped the two little splatter images from the set using a light blue color.  The splatters were blended out slightly with more water. Once the panel was dry I die cut it with an AJVD Stitched Dot rectangle and adhered it to a light gray cardstock base.  The CT floral die was cut from gold glitter cardstock and adhered to the image.   For some additional sparkle I added some Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear sequins in two sizes.  I think I over did it a bit with the little splatter images, but live and learn... right?   I have included a close up of the floral image with the gold glitter die cut so you can see more of the sparkle... it looks so pretty in real life!
Hope you have a wonderful day...

If I could just have 1/2 of your talent I'd be so happy! This is just gorgeous, Rosemary! I really love the splatter stamp--looks like you made the splattering yourself & the gold glitter layer is the icing on the cake!
