Today's card makes use of a brand new SU! Sale-a-Bration stamp set called "Botanicals for You." I used the honkin' big sentiment from the set for the focal point and scattered some tiny gemstones from Pizzazz Aplenty in matching colors of green, lavender and turquoise. I started with a piece of watercolor paper and sponged it with Ranger Mermaid Lagoon, Wilted Violet, and Twisted Citron inks, then stamped the image with Versafine Onyx black ink. While the ink was still wet, I clear embossed it to give it some sharp contrast with the sponged colors. I die cut the focal panel as well as the black card base with Lil Inker stitched rectangles.
I'm sharing this one over at Darnell's NBUS #6 challenge because this "new schtuff" just arrived earlier this week.
Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day whatever you're doing!
