Color Throwdown

Happy Wednesday everyone! Lisa Henke has a really sweet color palette for the new Color Throwdown Challenge: light yellow, green and blue! It totally inspired me to create something with Simon Says Stamp's Spring Flowers stamp set!  Thankfully, I don't need a sympathy card, but it's always good to have one on reserve.  

I white embossed the images on Ranger watercolor cardstock, then loosely watercolored using distress inks and markers.  I've been wanting to create some wide stripes with a flat edge brush and was happy how these turned out using Tumbled Glass distress ink.  The border includes a die from Reverse Confetti's Edge Essentials - a must have die set for that awesome finishing touch on a card!  I was too chicken to add splatters without using a more controlled method of just stamping with a splatter stamp from SU's Gorgeous Grunge set.  The sentiment die was cut twice and is by Simon Says Stamp.

I'm also entering this card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where "anything goes" for the theme this week.

Congrats to Cheryl McAskill of A Stampin' Holiday, our guest star stamper this week!
Also, we have to sadly say goodbye to Lisa Lara who graced us with her talents during March as our guest designer.  Thanks, Lisa!  Stay tuned next week to meet our April guestie.

Wow! Such a beautiful card, Wanda! Your splattered flowers are fabulous and that pinked edge is just perfect! (I just added that set of dies to my wish list).
