Make It Monday #196: Colorful Card Corners

I am so pleased to be sharing my card for this week's PTI MIM Challenge, Colorful Card Corners.

Make It Monday #196: Colorful Card Corners

I enjoyed this challenge because I tend to be a big fan of symmetry and most of my cards draw the eye towards the center of the card.  I played around with a few different ideas and finally decided that I would stamp some pink flowers with green leaves in the lower corner of my card.  I stamped flowers and leaves from the Songbirds stamp set onto watercolor paper.  Next, I stamped a background using Background Basics:  Bontanicals.  I used a paintbrush and water to bend the ink colors on the flowers and leaves.  Then, I used ink and water to watercolor around the edge of my flowers and leaves to fill in the blank space.  After allowing the paper to dry, I stamped the sentiment and adhered it to a chocolate brown piece of cardstock.  Finally, I added a few rinestones for a bit of sparkle.  Thanks for looking!
