Thinking Of You

Hello and happy Sunday! Today's card was created for the latest Freshly Made Sketches. To create my card I started by cutting a piece of patterned paper from the Studio Calico Atlantic 6x6 paper pad into a panel using a wonky edge stitched rectangle die from Gina Marie Designs. I mounted it straight to my white card base. I then cut a small strip of basic black cardstock from Stampin' UP and mounted it onto the card. I die cut a white circle using some white cardstock from Staples and a Spellbinders circle die. I mounted it directly to the card panel. I then stamped the flower from Stampendous Fresh Bloom wood mounted stamp using Versafine onyx black ink and heat set it using some clear embossing powder from Zing. I then watercolored the image using some inexpensive watercolors I picked up at Hobby Lobby. Once the image was dry I fussy cut it out and went around the edges using my Memento tuxedo black dual tip marker and added some white gel pen detail to the flower's stamen.  I stamped the sentiment from the Hero Arts OWH Year Round Sentiments stamp set using Versafine and heat set it as well. I cut the sentiment down into a small strip banner and mounted it directly to the flower and then popped it all up using some inexpensive fun foam. Love how pretty this turned out with the ombre of the watercoloring and the ombre of the patterned paper. I thank you for stopping by my blog today!
