Using popped up circles to spotlight parts of a stamped image is one of my fave design elements:
I embossed Stampendous Flower Fields on a piece of watercolor paper and then colored it with a water brush and Ranger peacock feathers and peeled paint distress inks. Sentiment is from Hero Arts CL544 Big Ticket. Base card was embossed with a Stampin' Up/Sizzix embossing folder called Fancy Fan as it kind of reminded me of a garden trellis. All edges were lightly inked with Ranger antique linen distress ink.
Other Materials Used: Papertrey ink cs, Hero Arts clear gems, Spellbinders Nesties
Hope everyone in the U.S. has a Happy 4th tomorrow!! We're going out on our friend's boat later tonight to watch some fireworks. Temps are still very hot here in upstate NY and we're thankful they didn't decide to cancel them :)
