The stamps I used are from the Impression-Obsession clear set #MC73 Easter Lily. It is an older stamp I've had in my stash, and have always liked it.
I began by smooshing inks onto a watercolor panel. I do this by rubbing inks from my Ranger distress mini pads onto a piece of acrylic, then spritzing with water, then placing the ink side of this acrylic onto my watercolor panel. I repeat this process until I achieve the look I desire. There are many tutorials online for this technique. Just do a Google search for ink smooshing technique, and you will find some.
After my panel was dry (ok, so I didn't wait, I used a heat tool), I stamped the flower image three times in the right corner with my black India Ink pad, then added the rejoice twice. That's it....really quick and easy.
I just layered it onto a piece of black card stock, then used craft foam to adhere it onto a dark pink card, which I had embossed using the We Are Memory Keepers quilt embossing plate. A few sequins finish off my card.
I am adding my card to these challenges:
Impression-Obsession Challenge - Fun with flowers
Allsorts Challenge - Spring inspiration
The Flower Challenge - Anything goes
The Daily Marker - 30 Day Color Challenge
That's it. I am feeling a bit better from my week-long saga of the stomach bug. I'm still a bit wobbly and gurgly, but coming along ok, and hope to be back in full swing soon. Working on Easter cards is giving me something to focus on, and I am enjoying the nice, bright spring colors.
It's my birthday tomorrow, and hubby and I are going to see The Shack. Since I've read the book a few years ago, I have been waiting for a movie about it. I'm looking forward to it. It will be good just to get out of the house after being indoors all week!
Thanks so much for stopping in today.
