Thinking of You - Technostamper Monday Lunch time Challenge # 358

Yesterday I made numerous pieces of watercolour wash backgrounds using different colour combinations.  It was made by applying 3 colours of inks directly onto acrylic blocks, spritzing with water and applying it to watercolour paper.  Coarse sea salt was added, and removed when the paper was dry.
For the piece I used today, the colours I were:  Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Tangelo Twist.


Using Stazon ink, the image from Serene Silhouettes was stamped on the dried background.  The birds didn't come out as dark as I wanted them to, so using the Versa Mark pen, I applied versamark to the birds only, and applied clear embossing powder.

Using the Project Life corner rounder punch, the bottom corners were rounded, as were the bottom corners or the black cardstock matting. 

The basic card is 4 1/4 by 11 folded at 5 1/2".  It is matted with Whisper White cardstock and then Confetti Celebration DSP.

The image panel was adhered to the DSP with the edges abut the top edge of the DSP.  Before adhering it down all the way, the sentiment, stamped in Basic Black on Daffodil Delight cardstock, and punched with the 1 3/8" circle punch and matted with a Basic Black 1 3/4" circle punchee.

Over the top of the card is adhered a piece of Black Cardstock, the edge of which was die cut with the Finishing Touches Edgelit.  A piece of Calypso Coral ribbon I(SAB) is attached to it, as well as a ribbon.

For finishing touches, some In Color sequins were added to the background, and some pearls under the sentiment.
