Kinda Eleanor

Hello and welcome back! Today I'm sharing a very clean and simple (CAS) card made for the challenges at Freshly Made Sketches and ColourQ.  I've included links below so you can visit the respective blogs and enjoy all the wonderful inspiration.

I like the colors in the ColourQ challenge but wasn't quite sure how I was going to pull them together.  Using a good sketch with lots of white space helped.

The flower was stamped in Archival Basic Black on watercolor paper, then colored with an Aqua Painter and reinker. I gave most of my retired In Colors to my granddaughter so I substituted Cherry Cobbler for Raspberry Ripple.  The leaves, from Kinda Eclectic stamp set, were stamped in Always Artichoke and after fussy cutting them, along with the flower, they were layered over the Island Indigo circle.

For final touches, I used the Curvy Trio Corner punch in one corner and added both Frosted and Metallic Collection sequins.

Thanks for looking today.  As always your visit and comments are so appreciated!

This is absolutely gorgeous, Stef! I almost used this stamp set for my card and now I'm glad I didn't! I would not have been blah compared to yours! Stunning colors and details make this outstanding. Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
