Long Stem Silhouettes Mini Hop

100_7583
 
Hi, and welcome to our second mini blog hop highlighting the new Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps sets - this time we're showcasing Long Stem Silhouettes and I can't tell you how much I love this set!
  I've created this card for the Featured Stamper Challenge at Splitcoaststampers today and based the layout on THIS beautiful card by the talented Janelle (dizzymommie) who's being featured this week.  I love the triple panels and thought it would work well with these long stemmed flowers.  
I used a technique which I've always admired when Karen (k dunbrook) uses it so beautifully - spraying the inked up stamp with water before stamping for a water color effect. 
I stamped onto watercolour paper and then thinned down some acrylic paint, spritzing it onto the stamped images.
Supplies include:
Watercolor Paper
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Stampin Up Real Red, Lucky Limeade ink
Ranger Distress Scattered Straw, Broken China ink

Be sure to leave a comment on each of the blogs along the way because this beautiful set is being given as a prize to one lucky commenter! 
Have fun checking out what the rest of the Design Diva's have come up with and thanks for stopping by today!
