Case Study Challenge #176

Hiya!

Yesterday was a super busy day. With school starting Monday getting prepared with books, covering, labelling, getting new uniforms.... the day flew by very very quickly. I just cannot wait for Monday :) Get back into routine. I need MY time.
Today being a bit relaxed, I had time to play CASE Study Challenge #176
This is Donna's muse card.

What a pretty card? Love that big bold bright flower on the background. 
I decided to use Uniko Studio's Pure Floral - Chrysanthemum stamp set for my card. It has two gorgeous BIG Chrysanthemum flowers in it. One solid flower and other outline flower. 
Here is my card for the challenge.

Congratulation card

I decided to colour my flower. So I used watercolour paper and stamped the big outline flower using Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. Then I coloured the flower using the same colour distress ink. I coloured in layers to add shading as well as extending the some watercolour outside the flowers by drying with heat gun in between layers. For the sentiment, I stamped the big sentiment from All Occasion Sentiment  #1 using gold ink and heat embossed with Zing gold glitter embossing powder on vellum. Wrapped the vellum around the watercolour paper and glued the paper on the card front. Finally added some gorgeous gold star from Pretty Pink Posh to accent. Here is the close up of the gorgeous gold glitter sentiment. I am learning how to use my camera by reading the manual. Shocking! I am reading the manual!!! If you click on the photo and enlarge it, you can see how sharp the sentiment is. I am so proud of myself :)
