House of Cards - Color Challenge

It's the time again for the House of Cards Challenge.  We have a color challenge this month;




Well, I am sorta pushing the limits here considering this is suppose to be a CAS card, but,  I was so inspired by the photo that I am going with it.  [Hell, let the challenge police get me ;)] I had so much fun using water color paper, stamping with Distress Inks and spritzing for the blurry background effect. I then re-stamped the flowers and colored in with more water coloring. I used the perfect Hero Arts Delicate Blossoms [so close to the photo], along with a sentiment from Essential Messages.  Yep, I am really liking this card!

Are you inspired by the colors/ photo?  Well come on over to the House of Cards and play along!  We would love to see how you are inspired~


Thanks for stopping by~

The background is gorgeous. The flowers are fantastic as they blend and contrast with the background. This is one fabulous card. Your techniques are flawless.
