Happy Happy


     This was a color piece that I've had on my work table for a over a month.  It started from a challenge technique long ago with blending distressed inks and then using a stamp with water to reverse stamp.  I loved how it came out, but never had the time to come up with something to finish it.  So since it was clean the craft room day ...  today was the day,  I don't remember which distressed inks I used, I believe I see peacock feathers, mustard seed, spiced marmalade, picked raspberry, seedless preserves and blue print sketch.   The stamp that I used is from Fiskars I believe? - Daisy's.

        I popped a 2" circle and stamped the sentiment with Black StazOn and brushed the edge with Peacock Feathers.  I used blue glitter dots and paper flowers to make it festive.  All of that mounted on a black CS base that has an edge of washi tape along the side to tie in with the sketch challenge.
      I mounted it on white CS and ran some faux stitching around the edge.
I would like to add this to the following challenges if I may ....

Try Stamping Tuesday: Sketch #282
Simon Says: Go Wild (color and flowers)
Polkadoodles: Anything Goes
Card Mania: Lets Party
Stamplorations: Theme and Sketch, Stamps and Markers & Sketch

Have an amazing day everyone ... now back to the Olympics

This is so pretty, Dawn! I love the colors you used to create the background. Love it too when I grab something that's went into my "I don't know how to use it right now" pile and come up with a great looking card later on. Thanks for sharing with us at Try Stampin' or Not on Tuesday.
