Wave of Blooms

Today's Color Challenge from SCS (CC381) is Pool Party, Island Indigo and Whisper White.  I don't have ink in the two blues, but did find some beautiful DP with Island Indigo ... it's from the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper at Stampin' Up!  Used the patterned paper to create a wave ... the dessert today is water, so I'm hoping that my "wave" will qualify!! :)  I punched hydrangea blooms, sponged the edges with Baja Breeze ink and glued them along top of the wave.  Easy card, just took a little time to make the flowers.

"Wave of Blooms"

Stamp:  Happiest Birthday Wishes (SU!)
Paper:  Summer Smooches DP (SU!); Bazzill White
Ink:  Baja Breeze, Versamark (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Hydrangea punch (Martha Stewart), hole punch, white gel pen, white embossing powder, heat tool, mat, stylus, glue dots, and adhesives

I punched out the flowers from white, sponged the edges with Baja Breeze ink, shaped the flowers with my mat and stylus, added a shaped small circle of Island Indigo paper on top (punched from the same designer paper), and added a dot of white in the center with my gel pen.

I hand cut a wave shape from the DP, mounted it to my Bazzill card front and then attached the flowers using glue dots.

The sentiment was stamped in versamark and white embossed.  I also added a small wave shape to the bottom of the inside panel.

Wonderful card! I like the layout with the way and love how you made the flowers. It may have been time consuming, but this is a "wow" card. Thanks for the inspiration.
