Simply Wonderful Bloom & Grow...

Well guess what day it is?!  (Being in this quarantine life...does ANYONE know what day it is anymore?!  😂 Haha.)  It is Day 4 of Martin's #30daycardmakingchallenge! Yay!  So excited about this card because WATERCOLORING is the star of the show on this card...

SUPPLIES:  (all items are available in my STORE!)

Colors: Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Pineapple Punch
Inks:  Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Pineapple Punch, VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers:  Thick Whisper White, Whisper White, Gray Granite, Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper
Stamps: Bloom & Grow
Tools: Heat Tool, Aqua Painter, Stitched Rectangle Dies, Subtle Embossing Folder, Label Me Lovely Punch
AccessoriesWhite Stampin' Emboss Powder, Woven Threads Sequin Assortment, Petal Pink 1/4" Metallic-Edge Ribbon
So...I pretty much am just in love with this card!  I love how I used bright colors that I LOVE, but it has such a softer look when you watercolor.  I used Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, and Pineapple Punch.

But I guess I should share what the challenge is today!  Nope...you don't have to watercolor!

Just make a card using a stamp set you have never used!  SO MUCH FUN, right?!  Thanks, Martin!  This was a fun one.  Because I LOVE the stamp set that I used here, Bloom & Grow, but I have yet to use it!  That just isn't ok!  Hee.  So this challenge was perfect!

On to more details of the card:

I stamped, embossed and watercolored the flower image twice.  Then I watercolored around the images with Coastal Cabana ink.  After that all dried, I masked the floral image and splattered some Coastal Cabana ink onto the background.  Then just added the greeting!

I really love this card and want to make more!  This is the perfect one to make because it was very therapeutic to sit down and just watercolor.  😍

I hope you enjoy this card!  And give the challenge a try!  Can't wait to see what you make!
