Welcome to another Color Throwdown Challenge where yours truly is the hostess this week! This photo inspired me to challenge you to use some springtime colors: pink, light green and kraft. After recently buying this Floral and Flutter Bundle from Concord and 9th, I knew right away I wanted to do an emboss resist technique on my card.
I started by white embossing the florals on Ranger watercolor CS, then I watercolored with Picked Raspberry and Twisted Citron distress inks then splattered with a mixture of Antique Linen and Scattered Straw. I'm loving the open floral die that coordinates with this stamp set and adhered only the center with a tiny glue dot so the petals could be slightly curled up! The sentiment is PTI's Wet Paint stamp and die set - cut once in metallic gold and once in kraft CS. The Diagonal Stripe BG stamp is by My Favorite Things and was stamped using a MISTI with Little Piggy ink by WPlus9. It's difficult to get thorough coverage with only one inking on a large background stamp, so the MISTI allows you to do it twice for a crisper image! This card was created for my one DIL who hit the big 30 year birthday milestone last week!
