You're in My Thoughts

Happy Saturday Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the challenge at The Flower Challenge Blog.

 Pink and Gray is such a pretty combo.

I had actually colored this image, 
from the retired Stampin Up set called Best Thoughts,  
a while back and had set it aside 
to do something with later.

When I saw this challenge I knew it would be perfect 

I stamped the image three times, masking off each time, 
using Black Stazon ink onto thick whisper white card stock.
I colored the flowers with Melon Mambo ink
 and leaves with Old Olive ink using my water brush.

I fussy cut out the top of the flowers and added a strip of 
Melon Mambo cardstock across the bottom.

I used Basic Gray cardstock for my base.

I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder.

I glued the flower piece directly to my card base, making this card completely flat and great for mailing. 

 Thanks for stopping by today!

This is gorgeous, I love this stamp set I have used this numerous times but this card is so pretty. You have a touch with that paint brush.

What do you mean by masking it off?

What an amazing card Vicki. The colouring is fantastic and I love how you have used Grey as your background. The little strip of melon mambo cardstock just gives it an extra something special x

Wow, Vicki, this is a stunning card, and I love your coloring and the fabulous layout! I love it! I'm so behind and trying to go through my emails and comment on some blog posts. DH had knee surgery in mid-december and is having the second one done soon. Hugs and love! xoxo
