Some Paper Smooches Fun!

I picked the Paper Smooches Anything Goes challenge for this week to help me create my card! Great excuse to play with stamps. 
 I picked my color combo based on the Color Throwdown combo, it was great to have these colors to focus on. 
 That neat lattice piece is actually a small background stamp from Paper Smooches, I just stamped it twice on some Tim Holtz watercolor paper. I have said this before but I will repeat it, I LOVE THIS PAPER!!! After I stamped the image and embossed it with white, I spritzed the paper and gave a few swipes with some Distress Stain. I love the resulting watercolor look.  The flowers and leaf sprig are stamps with matching dies.  I colored the stamps with Distress Stains before stamping them.  I also gave the yellow flowers a coating of Distress Glitter before cutting them out.  Notice my partial embossing with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.
 Here is the Paper Smooches Anything Goes challenge.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
