World Card Making Day 2018!!

Hello my crafty and creative friends!

I know it has been forever since I have posted on my blog, I tend to post on my Facebook page more often. It's tough trying to balance home, family, work and blogging with the time we have each day, but I am trying to figure it all out!

Last Saturday was World Card Making Day and I missed it!! I found out about it a couple of days ago when I was checking out the Simon Says Stamp Blog and noticed a post about it where we get to participate in all the fun. Well, I quickly pulled together this card yesterday, got it photographed this morning and am now getting it up.

For my card I pulled out the new stamp sets I ordered from Stamptember and had my daughter pick out which stamp set and the colors I used. She picked out the SSS/Clearly Besotted exclusive Stamptember collaboration set called Magnificent Magnolia, and she wanted the flowers to be purple and yellow.  I think it turned out quite pretty!

For the background I ink smooshed some Broken China and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks on to my watercolor panel, then I splattered those same colors along with some perfect pearls and a little bit of black acrylic paint. 

On a separate piece of watercolor paper I heat embossed the flowers with Black embossing powder and used my Derwent Inktense pencils for my painting medium. I used the coordinating dies to cut out my flowers and adhered them onto my dry ink smooshed background panel. 
I also heat embossed the sentiment with black embossing powder. I added a few clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and used my clear Wink of Stella brush pen to give it some extra sparkle!
