Simply the Best!














Two very busy days at work & I was pretty wiped out when I got home. I'm never too tired to work on a card, though, so here's my entry for the new Curtain Call Challenge & CAS(E) This Sketch! using Penny Black's Single Iris & edge to edge stamps & iris die.  

I began by using Gelatos directly on the stamp, spritzed & stamped on watercolor paper.  I tore the panel, sponged the edges with Distress Ink squeezed lemonade & then sprayed on Shimmer Spritz.  I die cut the iris from watercolor paper, applied Gelatos & blended with my waterbrush.  I used foam tape under the blossom & bud & attached it over the stamped flower. The sentiment is stamped in Memento Toffee Crunch.  

In case you wondered what I was talking about in this post, check out Darnell's blog. Enjoy your weekend.
