Daring to Dream (CCQ148)

Okay, didn’t think I’d get another thing posted for a while but here I am! Shocked? What I’ve realized is that I got rid of almost everything so I have very little to work with. Honestly, I didn’t think I’d continue stamping….so bear with me and the same old stuff for a while, would you?

 

This card was inspired by the ColourQ challenge of Tangerine Tango, Poppy Parade, Pink Pirouette, Lucky Limeade and Whisper White. What a combo! I knew instantly what I wanted to do.

 

I took my long clear block and the Stampin’ Write markers of the colours mentioned above. I coloured squares onto my block and then stamped it on some Watercolour paper which I’d spritzed with water. I think in hindsight I should have added a bit more water, but nonetheless, I got the look I was looking for.

 

I then backed it with Postage Punches in the coordinating colours.

 

 

To finish off, I added a spring of leaves and a couple of flowers centred with some Dazzling Details and a little butterfly. When I was finished, I really needed a little something extra in the way of texture so to continue with the butterfly motif, I added a large butterfly which I embossed and sponged lightly with Pink Pirouette.

 

Have a great day!
