Guest Designing at Poppystamps

I'm so honored to be Tiffany's Guest Designer for the July Poppystamps Challenge.  The theme is Over the Rainbow & I began by ink smooshing 6 watercolor panels using Distress Inks fired brick/barn door, ripe persimmon/carved pumpkin, lucky clover/twisted citron, faded jeans/blueprint sketch, dusty concord/wilted violet and squeezed lemonade/scattered straw/fossilized amber.
Then I die cut Poppystamps Potpourri Flower Set (a single die that cuts out 7 flowers) from each panel, keeping each color in a separate stack. I decided on which 3 images to layer, pulled them out, attached them in the center & gently lifted each petal. White on white makes a great background for colorful images, so I die cut Poppystamps Lattice Small Curve Border twice from white cardstock & attached them at the top & bottom of the card front. It looked pretty with the flowers, but decided I needed leaves.  Poppystamps Orchard Leaves were die cut from white cardstock scraps & arranged behind the flowers. I love the font of Poppystamps Luscious Script Hello & it includes a shadow.
I used black glossy cardstock for the word & Memory Box silver glitter cardstock from the Holiday Glitter Pad for the shadow.  Tiny black enamel dots in the flower centers tie it all together.  I send lots of cards just to keep in touch, so this one will soon be in the mail.  I hope I've inspired you to check out the July Poppystamps challenge. 
There's lots of great inspiration from the DT & a gift certificate up for grabs.  Thanks so much, Poppystamps, for having me design with the team this month!  
I'm entering SSS Wednesday & WAW.   
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.

So beautiful! I love the addition of white leaves--a wonderful idea! And using the silver glitter behind the sentiment was also great! The flowers are, of course, so lovely!
