Reverse Confetti May Color Challenge

It's the 16th of the month and that means it's time for a new Color Challenge with Reverse Confetti.  This month is a stunning color combo and inspiration photo. You'll for sure want to come play along. 

SO I have almost made a different card for this month's challenge 3 times. I don't know why I am so nervous to share this card with you all. I do love it and am so proud of myself for trying something new. If you have been by my blog for the past few weeks then you know I've been busy with the Watercoloring for Card Makers class. 

I tried my hand at some faux hand painting by using stamps. I created a pretty floral arrangement  by coloring my Petals 'n Posies stamps with my Distress Markers, stamping each image, and then going in with a detail paint brush and water, I soften the lines and add more color and depth.

 It was a slow process and I find I don't always have the patience it takes to water color. Waiting for each color layer to dry is HARD for me. I like to speed things up with my heat gun.  

Here is a closer look at some of the details. I used the newly released You Make Me Smile stamp set for my sentiment. I used Walnut Stain distress ink and then spritzed it with some water to give it a watercolored look. 

I added touches of pretty with a tiny scalloped layer from the Double Edge Scallop border Confetti Cut.  I added some color splatters with my paint brush and tiny sequins for the finishing touches. 

Here is the challenge graphic.
