Papertrey Ink Stamp-A-Faire - Many Blessings

Hello!  I'm jumping in to share a card for the Papertrey Ink Stamp-A-Faire event that is going on this weekend.  I wanted to stamp yesterday during the day but was busy steam cleaning my carpets and so I didn't get the chance to create this card until late last night.  There are so many fun and inspiring challenges to chose from over on the Papertrey Ink Capture the Moment site and the design team has done a wonderful job of putting together another fun Stamp-A-Faire event.

For my card today, I chose to start off with one of the first challenges which was to choose one of the Master Color Recipe cards and create a card using those colors.  I chose the John William Waterhouse color card with it's pretty muted colors.  John William Waterhouse is actually one of my favorite artist with his romantic paintings of garden scenes, Greek mythology and medieval paintings.  I had started a Pinterest board about a year ago with some of my favorite paintings of his, you can see it here if you're interested.

I'm combining two challenges with this one card because not only did I use one of the Master Color Recipe cards but I also used Melissa Phillips Floral Impressionism Challenge.  I love Melissa style and her card for this challenge is beautiful.  Melissa's video showing how she stamped, embossed and watercolored her flowers and card was fun and informative to watch so I decided to give it a try.
I used the PTI stamp set Bold Blossoms and stamped them onto watercolor paper and followed Melissa's steps to heat emboss and watercolor them.  I used a piece of watercolor paper for my background which I watercolored using ocean tides, spring moss and gray ink and then stamped with a text stamp from the Ombre Builders set.  Once my background was done, I die cut a PTI scallop frame from soft stone and adhered it to my watercolored background and added my flowers popping up the largest flower with foam tape.  Then I die cut three of the Many Blessings from ocean tides cardstock and glued them together and adhered that to my card and stamped the coordinating sentiment from the Scripted stamp set.  To finish off my card, I used some chunky iridescent glitter around the centers of each flower.
Thanks for stopping by!
