Sending Smiles

While waiting for laundry to finish, I decided to create a card for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge and also The Card Concept Challenge. I was inspired by the rainbow of colors in the inspiration photo, so proceeded with what I consider a clean and layered style.  I started with 7 distress markers and colored horizontally then spritzed lightly with water.  I used the ABC Panel die to cut the base.  Floral images were colored, die cut and popped with different thicknesses of foam dots.  Black and yellow enamel accents were added to
some of the flower centers.  Here's a list of what I used...

STAMPS: My World (sentiment) and Toucan of Friendship (flowers) - both by Reverse Confetti.
PAPER: Ranger watercolor, Black, White.
INK: Versafine Onyx Black.
MARKERS: Barn Door, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn, Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry.

Thanks for stopping by!
