Wisteria Get Well

Happy Saturday and welcome back!  My card today was made for this week's sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches:

It's also for the current challenge to make a get well card over at the SUO Challenges blog (

I stamped the floral image in Versamark then Basic Gray onto watercolor paper and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Using an Aquapainter and my stamp pads, I colored the stem with Pear Pizazz and the flowers with Wisteria Wonder and just a touch of Elegant Eggplant.

A faint amount of Crushed Curry was colored around the image and then Wisteria Wonder applied with a sponge dauber around the edge to make it pop against the background.

I took my color cues from the beautiful Afternoon Picnic paper, which incorporates a couple of my favorite colors, Wisteria Wonder and Coastal Cabana.  Very lovely together!

Thanks for taking a look!  Now I need to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather.  I hope the rest of your weekend is wonderful!
