SUO #98: Happy Watercolor, Fabulous Florets, Summer Silhouettes

I’m so excited to be posting my first card as an official member of the Stampin Up Only Design Team! This week’s design challenge is to use stamps to create a background. I used the Happy Watercolor set, coupled with two blossoms from Summer Silhouettes, for my background. I stamped the background with Daffodil Delight and versamark (then heat set clear embossing powder over the Versamark images). For the Fabulous Florets, I stamped the blossoms onto Whisper White CS and colored them with my SU markers, accompanied with a blender pen. The leaves were stamped onto some scrap green DSP I had beside my desk. A few Dimensionals behind the blossoms added the bit of dimension I desired and the pearl flower centers added the desired depth/texture to the card. I toyed with adding a bow; but, really liked the clean, light look that the card had without any extra embellishments.
