Guest Stamper - Color Throwdown

I've been so excited to share this card with you. 
 I was able to be the Featured Stamper at Color Throwdown this week and that allowed me to get to play along with their team with this weeks challenge.
 When I saw the color combo for this week I was so happy and really couldn't wait to start creating a card for it. 
 I wanted to be able to really feature that amazing blue so I turned to a Stephanie Barnard Clearsnap spray ink in Blueberry.  I sprayed it on a piece of watercolor paper. I actually used quite a bit of the ink so I had enough to be able to move it around.  I used an acrylic block to smudge it abit and I also gave it a spritz of water.  The sentiment is a stamp from Printworks Rubber Stamps.
I used some flower stamps from a set by Altenew.  I stamped the flowers with white ink and embossed them with white embossing powder.  In order to get that bright, strong yellow, I sprayed some Stephanie Barnard Clearsnap ink in Banana on my stamped images.  I did this in order to color my paper so I made sure to completely cover the paper and the images.  After this sat a bit I gently wiped off the excess ink and left it to dry.  The middles of the flowers were colored with a Copic marker.  A Martha Stewart paper doily was used to anchor my flowers plus I thought it gave a nice accent of white since that is one of the colors. 
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
