You're in My Thoughts - SUO Challenge#130

The challenge at SUO challenges this week is to make a card for a friend.  These are always good to have around as its amazing the number of times a friend really needs to get a hand made card.  Last week I sent out two of them.
For this one I made a background painted with clear blocks, markers, and a spritzer (filled with water) and used the stamp set "Remarkable You"

  • The base card is Melon Mambo, layered with the watercolor background. 
The Background
  •  This background was made by colouring a clear block with a SU marker, spritizing it lightly, and then painting with the block on a piece of Whisper White paper.
  • After it was dry, the piece was covered with Versa Mark ink, and embossed with Clear embossing powder.
  • Some White Tulle ribbon was adhered to a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock and adhered to the watercolored layer.
 The Image:
  • The floral image from "Remarkable You" was stamped with Black memento ink onto Whisper White cardstock
  • A blender pen was used to colour the flower - Melon Mambo & shaded with Smoky Slate. Some Soft Sky colour was added around the outside of the flower.
  • The circle framelits was used to die cut the flower image.
The Sentiment:
  • The sentiment, from "Best Thoughts" was stamped in Melon Mambo on Whisper White, and matted with Melon Mambo cardstock.
To finish the card, some bling was added in the form of gold sequins.  Five were added randomly on the front of the card.
