SSS Wednesday Challenge!

Hello All!


 I am over the moon thrilled and honored to be the
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge 
guest designer for July!

The design team is featuring Simon Says Stamp products this week.
  The challenge this week is a color challenge; use the colors White, Red, and/or Blue~

I have used the oh so fabulous SSS Beautiful Flowers for my card.  I stamped the image in Versafine black ink onto watercolor paper.  As I had not used my Derwent Watercolor Pencils in quite some time, I thought that given the details of this image, it would be a perfect time to pull them out.  I did put a base of blue and red color down, but there was not quite enough contrast, so I added to it with Peerless Watercolors.
Once I was happy with the flowers and the background, I turned my attention to the leaves.  As the challenge was red, white and blue, I could not add green, but I did not want to leave them plain, so I broke out my Sakura Gold Metallic Gelly Roll Pen and outlined the leaves and stems in gold.

I finished the card off with a surprise piece of contemporary designer paper; I love how it offsets the traditional floral spray.  Lastly, I added my favorite sequins, SSS Assorted Moonshine Sequins.  The sentiment is stamped in the Black Versafine Ink and the entire panel is popped up on the card base with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.

Simon Says Stamp generously provides a $50 dollar gift certificate each week so be sure to get your entry in for a chance to win!
