Celebrate Fantasy Floral

I tried my hand with the color challenge over on SCS this week. My inspiration for this card is from the FLOURISHES "Fantasy Floral set. I LOVE the detail in this particular stamp and knew it would be great to use reinkers to water color, since the SCS Monday challenge was to use reinkers for the Try a New Technique challenge!
I stamped my image on watercolor paper with StazOn jet black ink. The sentiment is stamped with the same. Celebrate is from the set, Flourished Words, with 27 different sentiments. Notice how the celebrate is curved to hug the top of the flower? With clear polymer stamps, they give you a little play with the stamp so I curved the stamp as I placed it on my clear block, and both being clear I can position it right where I need it to be! I LOVE that! The green bottom card stock is stamped with a vine leaf stamp from Fantasy Floral. It adds to the design without taking away from the focal point image!
I utilized my Janome Sew Mini to attach the black band of card stock! I am still getting used to this wonderful new item in the studio! I tend to hesitate when I first start stitching...then the stitches are not perfectly straight. You just have to place the needle in your starting position and go for it! I keep telling myself, just do it, if it you don't like how it looks, you can try again!
The beautiful sheer ribbon you see is from Flourishes! I love this ribbon, and cannot wait to use more of it! It ties like a dream. For this card I used a glue dot to attach. The adhesive gems are from GinaK Designs.
This card was made for a dear friends birthday! I hope she likes it! I appreciate you stopping by, take good care and hope you are having a great day. Have you noticed the craze over the new Just Rite Stampers out there? I have a creation I have been working on to show you with this product...hopefully tomorrow it will be complete! Until then,
HUGS,
