Flowers of Summer -- for Great Impressions Stamps

Happy Saturday!  I am posting today on the Great Impressions Stamps blog -- one of my favorite places to hang out on a Saturday! I hope you are enjoying the last days of spring.  Here in NW Wisconsin where I live, we are just beginning to get some summer heat in our days.  We've barely made it into the 70's and have yet to break 80.  But, the heat and humidity are coming -- they always do!

I love many things about summer.  One of my favorite things is the flowers.  I love the bright colors and the endless varieties.

For today's card, I got out my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and a water brush to create a watercolor effect.  Here's how it turned out:

I used 2 Great Impressions rubber stamps on this card, J09 - Garden Flowers, and C366 - Hello Summer.   J09 - Garden Flowers was stamped on a piece of watercolor paper. 

The die used to cut out the watercolored panel is from Top Dog dies.  The banner shaped die cut is from Craftin' Desert Divas.  The oval shaped stitched die (with sentiment) is from Die-namics.  Papers for this card are old My Mind's Eye.

I used this month's challenge picture at Great Impressions Stamps for inspiration for this card.

The challenge runs all month, and it's anything goes, so I hope you join us!

Don't forget about all the other wonderful stamps in the Great Impressions Store.  You'll want to check them out!
