Bloomin' Marvelous

Hi everyone.  Just had to make a second card with the colors of the SCS Color Challenge from yesterday (CC413 - tangerine tango, lucky limeade, whisper white).  This time I used a lovely stamp that was sent to me by my good friend Peggy.  Love this image and thought it would work perfectly with the watercolor spritz technique - turned out soft and feminine - just the look I was wanting.  I used my new SU! Bloomin' Marvelous sentiment stamp that I just got (for free) during the Sale-a-bration event.  I do love getting things for free!! :)

Normally I would just stamped the flower and sentiment and been finished, but today I decided to use some sheer thin ribbon that I've had for a while to add some interest to the top.  And I attached a lime green dragonfly charm that I've had for AGES.  Hope you like.

Stamps:  Floral 496-12 (Rubbernecker Stamps); Bloomin' Marvelous (SU!)
Paper:  White (card base); Watercolor
Ink:  Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  water mister, 1/8" Tangerine Tango sheer ribbon, dragonfly charm (unknown), removable tape, glue, glue dots, and dimensionals

I masked the blooms with removable tape and inked the rest of the stamp with Kiwi Kiss ink (I don't have a Kiwi Kiss or Lucky Limeade Stampin' Write marker or I would have used that instead).  I removed the tape and inked the blooms with my Tangerine Tango Stampin' Write marker.  I misted the stamp five times and stamped onto the watercolor paper card front.  I inked the sentiment and misted three times before stamping it on the card front.  I added the ribbons and charm and then popped the card front up on my card base to give added dimension.

Here's a close-up view of the main image:
