Floral card for any occasion

After so many CAS cards it is weird making a card with ink all over... but at Power Poppy Creative Confetti, Julie challenged us to make our image POP, making a statement with a background... so here it is.  I stamped my HLS image with green Distress Oxide and let it really dry before I coloured it with both Distress Inks and Oxides... though it might run, all good. Then I stamped and cut a mask and sponged Distress Inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Tattered Rose and Chipped Sapphire, then I misted it with water... it blended nicely but it wasn't till it dried that I felt happy with it... I sponged in some Tumbled Glass close in around the middle and finally flicked on some water droplets... more drying.  It looked ok but the outline and detail looked awful, so I carefully repositioned my image and stamp with the Misti and stamped with grey ink - it lifted the whole image beautifully - I'm real happy now, to finish I used a red card to enhance the colours .  I am also posting to Stamplorations Never Ending Anything Goes challenge.  Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day.
