Full Bloom- The Flower Challenge

You still have time to come and play along with us at 

Our theme this month is CAS, Clean and Simple.
You just have to go and check out the fabulous cards this month...very inspiring.

So onto my card.
I began by placing my card front into my Misti and stamped the flower image from Avery Elle in black Memento ink.  I stamped the image again onto another piece of cardstock, then die-cut it using the Stitched Dome die.  
Next, I loose watercoloured just the flowers on the die-cut using my Tombow markers.  I scribbled them onto my non-stick craft mat and picked up the colour using a wet paintbrush.  When the panel was dry, I pop dotted it over the blackline image to create a highlighted area that draws in the eye.
Using my Misti again, I stamped the sentiment and mounted it all over a piece of pink cardstock.

Hope you get a chance to come and play along with us.
Thanks so much for taking time to visit.

This dome shaped prettily coloured topper looks great over the outline stamped image to give the spotlight effect Karen, and love the sentiment. x

That color pink is so bright and beautiful! I really like how it pops! The die shape is unusual, but very pretty, like an ornamental window. TFS!
