Watercolor Blocks

Happy Sunday, everyone!  I hope everyone is having a wonderful long weekend!  Today I am playing along with Winnie and Walter's challenge for day 3 of their Share the Love week featuring Simon Says Stamp.  Today's challenge is to create a background using one stamp or one stamp set.  I used Simon Says Stamp's Favorite Flowers stamp set for this card.

Here is the card I made:

First, I die cut the rectangles using Pretty Pink Posh's Stitched Duo Dies 1 and Tim Holtz watercolor paper.  Then, I assembled all of the rectangles so they were side by side and taped them together on the back so the images would line up.  Next, I stamped the images using Versamark and then heat embossed them with some clear embossing powder that has glitter in it.  Next, I watercolored the images.  Once they were dry, I assembled the rectangles in spaced out strips on the card.  I used my Silhouette to cut out the Winnie and Walter sentiment from silver glitter paper to match the sparkle of the watercolor paper.  To finish it up, I threw on some enamel dots and I was done!  I think this card turnd out so pretty!  I don't always think of kraft paper being pretty, but with the florals and glitter all over it, it definitely fits the bill.  :)

Here is a close up of the glittery details:

I am going to submit this card for this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where the theme is Anything Goes.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope your weekend is wonderful!

Until next time...
