Papertrey June Blog Hop Challenge
Reef Flowers. That is the name of this card. Do you name your cards? This card was inspired by the beautiful image for the June Paptertrey Ink June Blog Hop.
Isn't it just beautiful?! I attempted to replicate the style and colors of the inspiration piece, so once again, I pulled out the PTI In Bloom Stamp Set. I first put a wash of light blue and green inks onto some white distress watercolor paper. I then heat embossed in white the blooms and leaves, and applied a loose, but vibrant color wash over the images.
I added the watercolored panel onto a bright pink card base, flush to the top and then trimmed the sides. I finished the card by heat embossing in white a sentiment from Iconic Images onto black paper, adding it to the card with dimensional adhesive. The sides of the sentiment panel overhang just a tad. Ooh, and then lastly, I added a few iridescent sequins too, they change colors from pink to blue in the light and I thought that they fit perfectly with the blooms.
