What a Beautiful Day for Petal Passion!

I have successfully adopted the #loveitchopit mantra and haven't been guilty of hoarding pretty papers for a long time now!  Instead, I'm finding I have lots of little offcuts that I don't want to waste so I'm tending to build cards around them!

Layering is a great way to use up oddments of pretty paper
This card is all about using up pieces of the gorgeous Petal Passion Designer Series Paper!

I watercoloured one strip and then layered away with Flirty Flamingo cardstock - one of the retiring 2016-2018 In-Colours that I'm trying to use up as well!

To finish the card I stamped the flower from Beautiful Day onto Flirty Flamingo cardstock with Basic Black Archival ink, sprinkled with clear embossing powder and heat set it.  I then watercoloured with Flirty Flamingo and Calypso Coral inks to add some depth to the flower.  For the leaf, I simply painted over the Flirty Flamingo card with Tranquil Tide ink.

There's a Clear Faceted Gem in the centre of the flower for extra "oomph"!

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!
