Brainwave Challenge #14

It's Wednesday so that means it is Brainwave Challenge time! This time around, Ashley has come up with a cute sketch for the challenge. Don't forget to use the keywords, BWC14, if you upload to SCS. Please play along, any stamps are allowed, they don't have to be Treehouse stamps but hey, if you have Treehouse stamps, why not use them.

I decided to make a short long card. I also liked the color challenge from yesterday on SCS that I used those colors again! I used Simply Organic from Treehouse. Embossed the flowers in clear and then watercolored them with Groovy Guava and sponged the edges with all three colors (barely banana, groovy guava, chocolate chip). Now I don't own a Craft Chocolate Chip pad so how was I able to emboss? I stamped the image first in Versamark and in my classic Chocolate chip pad and then stamped on the cardstock! Poured on the embossing powder and embossed! Added a little saying at the bottom (still Simply Organic set) and then added some grosgrain ribbon with a little bow.

stamp: Simply Organic; paper: chocolate chip, groovy guava, barely banana, very vanilla; ink: barely banana, groovy guava, chocolate chip, versamark; accs; clear embossing powder, aquapainter, ribbon, sponge
