Card Concept Challenge # 68-

Hello! It's time for a new challenge here at 

And just look as this GORGEOUS inspiration photo!

I was immediately inspired by the rich colors of the flowers against the gray chair.

I used one of my newer Stampin Up stamps-Avant Garden.
I wanted to try a technique that I saw on the Penny Black blog. She colors her stamps
with Distress Markers, and then blends each image with a water brush. It gives this cool watercolor look. I really like the results!

Each designer chooses a different style of card to make!
All of the styles are explained HERE.
You can use any of the styles we have defined or create your own with a combination of styles.

 This week I chose the Clean and Layered style:
  • clean lines
  • lots of layers
  • designer papers/embossing
  • embellishments/accents
  • clean and fresh looking
  • some coloured images at times
  • white space

I hope you will be inspired to join us here at 
And don't forget to visit my very talented team mates for some gorgeous inspiration!
