Embrace Life

This morning I really had the urge to make a card and as we had been playing with watercolours last weekend I wanted to also experiment with using the Magical Micas as paints.  I stamped these lovely Inspired by Stamping Aster flowers in Versamark and clear embossed them on watercolour paper - well that made it difficult to see the outline (so maybe next time a very pale grey might be the go).Then I wet the first flower and tried sprinkling on the fine powder - it didn't work at all well so I went with the powder on a palette and mixed it before painting - I tried not to be to pedantic about keeping in the lines - I love these colours and how they've turned out; they are all shimmery too. Finally when it was dry I used Evergreen Bough Distress Ink to smooch in the watery background and stamped on a Stamplorations sentiment.  I am posting to Stamplorations New Stamp Release and also to Stamplorations October challenge Stamps and Fave Colour Combo. Thanks for taking a peek
