Spring Flowers

I'm catching up on some challenges from earlier this week ... so today's card is for this week's Free For All Challenge at SCS (F4A112 - Inchies and Twinchies) and for this week's CAS-ual Friday's (CFC48 - Opposites Attract).

I didn't really know what an inchie was, so looked through the SCS challenge gallery to see.  I thought this stamp from SU! would qualify!  I used two opposite colors from the color wheel (hot pink and soft green).  Quick and easy card made with all SU! products.  Hope you like.

"Spring Flowers"

Stamps:  A Flower for All Seasons, Happy Moments - sentiment (SU!)
Paper:  Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Certainly Celery polka-dot DP, watercolor (SU!)
Ink:  StazOn black, Melon Mambo, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  small artist's paint brushes, corner rounder, adhesives, and dimensionals

I stamped the image in StazOn black ink onto watercolor paper.  I mixed some re-inkers with a little water and used the brushes to watercolor my main image.  I went over some of the softer colors with Stampin' Write markers to intensify the colors.  I mounted the main image onto a thin frame of Melon Mambo cardstock.

I rounded the top right corner of each piece before assembling all the layers (as shown in the picture above), popping up between the layers of white and also the main panel for depth.
