30 Day Color Challenge: SSS Bright Blossoms

Hello everyone!

It is day 6 of the 30 day color challenge sponsored by Kathy at The Daily Marker, and I have a card design to share using Tim Holtz Distress Inks as my color medium:

I started this card by cutting a white heavy weight card panel using the largest Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle Die.  I used a round blending tool to sponge Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, and Carved Pumpkin distress inks onto the white panel.  I splattered some clean water droplets onto the panel of distress ink, then dried it with a paper towel. I then splattered some Copic Opaque White ink mixed with a little water from my paint brush onto the panel as well as some Black Soot Distress ink mixed with water.

I cut 5 of the Bright Blossoms dies from white cardstock and adhered them together for some dimension, and I cut a 6th flower from water color paper.  I water colored the 6th flower's petals using Mustard Seed distress ink mixed with water, and once it was dry, and popped the petals into the dimensional piece with 3D foam tape. I cut the Thanks die by Simon Says Stamp 4 times adhering them together for dimension and adhered it onto my card panel.  I embossed a sentiment from the "Because" stamp and die set by My Favorite Things using white embossing power and heat set onto a black strip of cardstock.  I adhered that below the Thanks die using 3D foam tape. I finished the card by adding some clear sequins by Pretty Pink Posh using Multi Medium Matt glue and placed the finished panel on an A2 sized top folding card from black heavy weight cardstock.
