Flowers in a Vase

Two challenges today:  the color challenge at The Play Date Cafe and the challenge to use a masking technique at Just Us Girls

I dug out the SU Watercolor Minis, which worked perfectly with the colors.  Stamped the flowers with Memento Angel Pink, Love Letter and Rhubarb Stalk on watercolor paper for some texture.  Stamped the vase from the Gina K set Vogue Vases with Brilliance Pearlescent Poppy for a little shimmer.  Masked the vase and the bottom of the card and sponged Distress Inks in Weathered Wood and Black Soot.  Rounded a couple of corners and layered onto burgundy cs and a white card base.  A green gel pen was used to make the stems of the flowers.
Thanks for visiting!
