Winnie & Walter Seize the Playdate...

I had been patiently waiting for my floral stamps from Winnie and Walter to arrive, but as stalking my postie has not paid off yet, and I couldn't wait to join in the Winnie and Walter Playdate #2, I created today's card using just the Colour Palette for inspiration - although I think my green went a tad more lime than olive ;)

The background panel was created by smooshing Distress Inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar onto waxed paper, then spritzing with water before twisting a piece of watercolour paper in the ink pools. The resulting pattern reminded me of a nebula, so I stamped Walter & Winnie Scenery: Big Bang Confetti stars with Versamark Watermark ink then embossed in white. The Walter & Winnie The Big, the Bold and the Happy sentiment was also stamped in Versamark Watermark, and embossed in Zing Orchid on a clear vellum fishtail flag panel. The vellum is secured in place by gluing behind the sentiment, and adding a couple of extra dabs of Dimensional Magic behind the Studio Calico wooden veneer stars, inked with Momento Ink Wedding Dress.

With these gorgeous summer colours, I'm playing along with
