Bright and Beautiful

...that's Wendy's theme for the Free 4 All Challenge over on SCS! I was also inspired by the photo for the current Fusion Card Challenge. I hope to create another card using the great sketch. 



I did a wee bit of watercoloring by spritzing the background leaves and vase before stamping. I
freehand washed some light blue to "ground "the vase. I then popped some flower and leaf dies to add dimension.  I love this hello die  and decided to add sweet friend to the sentiment and send this to a friend who is recovering from surgery.  Confession: I stamped it first on the card and it wasn't perfectly straight, so I moved to plan B and used a word window punch to cover up the goof. :-) I'll bet that hasn't happened to any of you - LOL!  I just love it when I complete a card and the very last stamping move results in a goof...NOT!





Here's what I used...
STAMPS: Spring Blooms, Coming Up Roses, Hand Lettered Hello - all by WPlus9.
PAPER: Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock, White by PTI.
INK: TH distress inks - Ripe Persimmon, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters, Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass.
