Sketchy Floral

      I'm so happy you could come by. Just a quick stop in to get a card up before the challenge closes.
As stated in my previous blog I love the combination of gray leaves with my flowers. One of my Favorite techniques is watercolor and this card has lots of that. I used Altenew's Sketchy Floral stamps, Altenew-Antique Silver embossing powder, TH distress ink, (Milled Lavender + Dusty Concord) for flowers and (Pumice Stone + Hickory Smoke) for leaves. The Sentiment is form Altenew- Beautiful Inside set. I used Canson #140 watercolor paper and black Recollections
for the card.
     I silver embossed this beautiful stamp on my Canson paper and then using the distress inks water colored it. I wanted a clean and simple card so I only added a few black pearls around the sentiment.
I cut it down to 41/8" x 53/8" and adhered it to my black card. 

      I will be adding this card to these challenges:
Altenew- 2018 April Inspiration Challenge
AAA Cards-#112-My Favorite Technique
Penny Black and More-April- Black, White plus one
Casual Fridays #196-Spring Fever
SSS Wednesday Challenge-Happy Birthday
