Sketch Ranunculus with Simon Says "Stamp It"

I've got a quick post this morning because I made a very similar card a few days ago. You can find it here.  I made this card in these specific colors for a friends' birthday which happens to be today.

This card features a watercolored background created by smooshing Vintage Jadeite and Tropical Teal Inks onto my craft mat and spritzing it generously with Iridescent Gold Shimmer Spritz.  I promise, I did not use any yellow ink here; only the gold shimmer spray. The background panel was cut using the largest Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles Die.

I stamped the blooms and other stems from the Sketch Ranunculus Stamp Set in Versamark and heat set them Simon Says Stamp Antique Gold Embossing Powder and watercolored them using reinkers and a water brush in the same colors as the background; Tropical Teal and Vintage Jadeite.  Once they were dry I misted them with some sheer shimmer spritz and let them dry completely so I could die cut them with the Sketch Ranunculus Coordinating Dies.

I assembled everything onto a top folding horizontal card base made from Stamper's Select White using a combination of Thin 3D Foam Squares and Ranger Multi Medium Matte.  I used a few Gold and Peacock Sequins to embellish.

I'm entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge #53 although I still need to post it over at the Wednesday Challenge Blog. I'll be back later today with a fun technique that I tried out this past weekend. See you again soon and thanks so much for stopping by!
