It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

We have a new sponsor, Verve Stamps, for the Curtain Call Inspiration: Boho Bright!  A randomly selected participant in the Boho Bright challenge will receive a $30 gift certificate to use at  Verve Stamps, while the LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!

For my card I embossed the flower image in white on white cardstock panel. Then using colours inspired by the photo I watercoloured over the flower. Once it completely dried I stamped the verse using VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I trimmed a piece of royal blue cardstock slightly larger than the watercolour panel and adhered to the card base.  A few sequins and done.

People who can create such beautiful one-layer cards have my deepest admiration. I wish I had talent for that, but unless it's layered and then layered again for good measure, I can never create something I like.

Great design work!

This is so pretty. I like how you toned down the bright colors just a tad by using watercolor.
