Anyways, this card was created for the Featured Stamper Challenge on SCS. In this challenge, your job is to CASE a card from the featured stamper's gallery, changing at least 2 things. So, I was browsing through Beth's gallery (our featured stamper) and found this adorable card she made. Since my brother has horses and land and such, and they live in TX, I thought this is the PERFECT card! Jocelyn is an adorable little cowgirl. So, I changed several things when CASEing this one, including stippling Flamingo Pink Pearl Ex over the paisleys in the background. It is so shimmery IRL, but the scanner just doesn't do it justice.
This Best Blossoms card was created for the latest Technique Lover's Challenge. The technique we were to use was called "Blurred Vision". This is the absolute easiest way to achieve a watercolor look. I stamped the base of the lilac using Perfect Plum, then overstamped the detail in Elegant Eggplant. Next, I took my aqua painter over the edges (and some in the middle) of the images to blur it, and viola - a soft watercolor look. To snazz it up a bit, I stamped the detail again in versamark and embossed with Irridescent Ice EP. Another shimmery card!
Two fun challenges and two great cards (if I do say so myself). Hope you enjoy looking as much as I enjoyed creating!
