Simple things in life

Hello! I hope everyone is having a great day :)

I started this card by stamping the flower from Clearly Besotted on water color paper and heat embossing it with clear sparkly powder. Then I used Zig Clean Color markers and a water brush to color it in. I used a pale blue color to outline the flower and add some light color to the background. After stamping the sentiment from Hero Arts, I trimmed the panel down and layered it on some patterned paper.

You can see the sparkle on the embossing powder a little here. In real life it is nice because it looks plain until you turn it slightly and then it reflects all the light. :)

I am sharing this in a couple of challenges:
Addicted to Stamps and more #241 - Anything Goes
CAS Watercolor Card Challenge - Flowers
Work It Wednesday - Rain or Flowers

Thanks so much for visiting!
