Altenew March Inspiration Challenge

 Hello. Emily Midgett has a great inspiration photo on the Altenew March challenge. 

I had an idea using a clear stamp block to create a faux watercolor rectangle with the inspiration colors. I smooshed ink pads on the block, then misted it with water and layed it ink side down on watercolor paper. Let the block sit for a bit then dry the paper with a heat gun. 

The colors blended beautifully and left me with a fun, irregular edge to the rectangle. I then used black ink to stamp the Captivating Blooms set over the colored block. I extended the colors on a few blooms and leaves with alcohol markers. The greetings are from the Versatile Greetings die set.

For my accents I used enamel dots to match the ink colors and some black baker's twine. Popped my panel up with foam tape on a black, top folding card base.

This also fit the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challege to "Add a bit of Green".
