The Flower Challenge #18 - Anything Goes

Hello and happy Sunday! 

Today I want to share a card with you which I made for the March challenge at The Flower Challenge! This month we have an Anything Goes challenge AND a SPONSOR!!! 

EunJi has generously provided our DT with two new digital stamps which are the prize for a winner this month!!! EunJi is an amazing colorist and stamp designer! You can see her gorgeous artworks on her blog and her digital stamps on her Etsy Shop: DotBStamp.

For today's card I used Anemone Bouquet set.

I used the single flowers and leaves to arrange my own floral cluster.
The background was made using 2 Piece Foliage Coverplate die by The Ton.

I printed the single flowers and leaves in several sizes on Canson mixed media paper, watercolored them and fussy cut them out. The blending on the background was created using Peacock Feather, Crushed Olive, Evergreen Bough and Cracked Pistachio DIs on a white cardbase. I splattered clean water and water and Perfect pearl mix on it. After the background was dry I glued white die cut piece of 2 Piece Foliage Coverplate die. It cuts the panel in a inner piece and a outer piece. I first glued the inner piece and then the rectangle frame, I cut from the outer piece, on the cardbase. The sentiment is from Painted Peonies (The Ton). I stamped it in Black pigment ink and clear heat embossed it.

I arranged the fussy cut flowers and leaves as I wanted and mounted them onto the card with the help of Press'n Seal. On some area I used foam adhesive for more dimension. To finish off the card I added a few Glass Slippers sequins (The Ton).

Hope you enjoyed today's card! Stop by The Flower Challenge blog to see what my amazing team mates created with EunJi's digital stamps!

Your watercoloring is always spectacular, TaeEun, but you also have a way with beautiful floral arrangements.
