Hero Arts: Put a Flower On It

Hey Everybody! Happy weekend to you! I'm here today with a quick post so that I can play along with this month's A Blog Named Hero challenge: Put a Flower On It.  I was so excited when I saw this Mum stamp come out in Hero Art's recent spring release. They've got some other mum stamps that I love that are wood block... I'm a cling/photomolyer lover so you can imagine how happy I was to see this stamp released in photopolymer as part of their Hero Florals line (DC235).

I started by heat embossing the flower image in gold on watercolor paper. Then I watercolored using pink and yellow which blended together to give me some fun orange and peach tones.

I watercolored the background piece in blue and then splattered it with ink. I used sparkly embossing paste and a Tim Holtz stencil (THMS106) to create a subtle but fun, textured background.

My sentiment comes from Simon Says Stamps Mom's Clematis set and is heat embossed in silver on vellum (isn't that font gorgeous?!). Finally, I finished the card off by adding clear embellishments that I colored blue with an alcohol marker and some some sequins.
