Susan's Garden Spring Flowers

Today I wanted to work with the new, beautiful JustRite background stamp called "Grand Damask".   I white embossed the design on white card stock then used Gelatos to color it.  I scribbled on the color in a diagonal direction, spritzed it with water, then brushed the color around to blend. Gelatos are acid-free pigment sticks that glide on creamy vibrant color and blend beautifully with or without water.   I then used a baby wipe to wipe the color off the white embossing.  I love the way it turned it.  Along the edge I added the Spellbinders "Parisian Accents" border and some Kaiser Craft pearls.

To decorate the card, I added some flowers created with the Susan's Garden flower dies;  I created the Lily, Mini Daisy, and Forsythia flowers.  The greenery behind the flowers is the Impression Obsession Leafy Branch.
