Happy Thursday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card i made using the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches blog.

As you all know I have been playing around a lot with water coloring with distress inks. I love playing with the different colors and seeing what backgrounds I can make for my cards.

I used a few colors on my water color paper. I then used the Stampin Up Peaceful Petals stamp setfor my flower. I stamped with Versamark onto water color paper and embossed with white embossing powder. I did the same with the leaf stamp. I then water colored and cut them out.

The flower and leaves are mounted onto a die cut doily from My Favorite Things. The "hello" is cut three times from black card stock and glued and stacked up and then added to the card.
I added a bit of black enamel over the die cuts to give it the shine.

The base of the card is white and then a layer of black and then the water colored BG. the flower and doily element is added to the base with dimensionals.
Thanks for stopping by today!
