Newton's Nook Designs 2016 May Flowers Blog Hop

**this is my 2nd post of the day! to see my Lawnscaping Challenge feature card, scroll down or click here!**

hello!

what a wonderful day, and it's even better than usual because the Newton's Nook Design team (and guests!) are celebrating spring with an awesome Blog Hop! 



for my flower themed card, i used the adorable Love Grows mini stamp set! 




i LOVE it! I heat embossed the images in white, and then watercolored them with my Distress Markers! i LOOOOVE the soft, super 'watercolor-y' look! I fussy cut out the flowers and leaves, and then popped them up over my background!




the background was created by using some embossing paste and a scripty stencil, then added some subtle color with my Spun Sugar Distress Ink pad (which i just added using the packaging technique)!
