'Orange' You Glad?


'Orange' you glad it's the weekend. 
'Orange' you surprised I didn't make a blue card?
 I sure am happy as I have time to play along with the challenge at Splitcoast this morning.  Here is the photo that inspired my card from the Beach House Pinterest board:


I have had this Impression Obsession stamp for ages and pulled it out the other day so I would be inspired to use it on a card.  Well, today was the day.
I stamped the flowers using Memento black ink and embossed with clear powder.  I used Brushos on my acrylic block to watercolour the flowers.  
When the flowers were dry, I stamped the sentiment and then drew in the border line to pull the whole design together.

Adding my card to these challenges:

CAS-ual Fridays- EMBOSSING

Have a great weekend.

Supplies:  stamps- Impression Obsession, Rubbernecker/ fine line bl marker/ Memento bl ink/ clear eb powder/ paint brush/ acrylic block/
