Cone Flower in Yellow and Blue

Today I've decided to share with you a card I made a while ago, the pic has been sitting there waiting for me to get back into posting on my blog more regularly so I thought it was time to bring it into the spotlight.
I was playing with Paper Artsy Dylusions powder pigments and first stamped this gorgeous Cone Flower image from the Stampers Anonymous Flower Garden stamp set.  I used Versamark ink and white embossing powder.  I then used a small amount of 'Golden Sands' Infusion, mixing the crystals with a little water to create a background wash on a piece of water colour paper.  Once dry I mixed a stronger solution from 'Royal Blood' Infusions and painted the flower heads and stems.  I then splattered more of the paint over the background using a paint brush.

I used SU! 'Night of Navy' ink to drag round edges of the painted panel and to stamp the frame and sentiment from the Rubbernecker 'Freehand Phrase #900' stamp set on a scrap of plain watercolour paper, which I attached over the background.  I then mounted the panel onto a piece of cream card and then another of navy before attaching to the base card.

I love how this card turned out, hope you do too.  Thanks for dropping by I hope you'll call back again.
