Memories brighten our lives - Inspiration Destination #131

Wednesday June 28, 2017
So you have any plans for 4th of July?  it's sure coming up fast.  Living in the country I am not a fan of the 4th. Too many illegal fireworks.. Fire hazards and late night noise. I am glad this year I am retired so no need to get up for work the next day. That's the only plus this year..  Be safe what ever you do and enjoy..
On to our two week challenge at
This is my card.. I made the water color background using the Kuretake Gansi Water colors. I wanted the outcome to be dark because I knew I wanted to use this My Favorite Things Camellia flower.. If you read my blog and remember. I bought by mistake some light silver shinny paper .. well thought that would be perfect for the flower.. I like the look and shine. I then used Paper Trey ink leaves and dies and inked with Altnew inks. I was looking for a simple smaller sentiment and saw this one from Tech. Tuesday and so stamped it and cut the banner. I used some Nuvo drops on the card and layered it. It's done.. I like the look. Those colors are so rich.
I hope you get time to see the DT creations for this challenge.
