What To Do When Your Snowed In?

Snow day!!  Looks like a great day to play!  Inside of course since the wind chill is about 30 below!!
When I saw the colors on Color Throwdown #273, I just couldn't resist playing with my new Technique Tuesday Greenhouse Society stamp, Clematis.  And to help my mojo along, I used the sketch from My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club #157.


Such a simple card to make, but I love how it turned out!  I cut a strip of watercolor paper, using Versafine ink I stamped the image repeatedly until I had my panel covered.  I then used my water brush and Peacock Feathers Distressed Ink to color a select few of the flowers. Adhered the image to a matching piece of card stock.  Used my Spellbinders A2 matting basic dies to cut the gray panels.  Stamped my SU sentiment in the lower corner of the light gray panel.  Pierced around the dark gray mat before layering the other panels to it.  Used foam tape to adhere the layers to my card base.  I left the card simple with no embellishments or glitter.
Thanks for stopping by my little blog.  Hope you will consider following.
God bless!
