Good morning! This will be a quick post this morning, before I head out for a day of shopping with 2 of my cousins. Oh yeah, we picked the coldest day of the year. It's 5 degrees F right now. Brrrr is putting it mildly. lol!

I created this card using stamping, clear embossing and sponging...emboss resist. It's such a fun technique.
This card is going into the Paper Players CAS Challenge #129. I love this versatile sketch provided by the team.
I've got several ideas swirling around in my brain. But, this is what I created last night...
I saw a video of a very similar technique done, using this same stamp. She used watercolors and a paint brush. If I can find the video again, I'll come back and add a link.
I stamped the background sentiment first. Then I clear embossed the stamped image - which, in this case, is the negative of the floral image. I sponged on several colors of ink for the blooms and a green for the stems.
I love watching the blooms appear as I add more ink. I matted it with colored card stock and mounted it with foam tape onto the card base.
Those flowers make me think of spring, maybe that's why I gravitated to this particular stamp last night. You know...with the brrrrrrr going on here, right now!
Thanks so much for taking a look.
