Featured Stamper ctd#739

Hello friends! I was excited to be picked as the Featured Stamper for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge #739!
The colors are as shown in below, Celery green, Yellow and Aqua:
Honestly, I made about 7 different cards, but decided to feature this one made with Gina K. Designs' The Lord is My Shepherd Stamp Set.
This was stamped with Versamark Ink onto Canson 140 lb. Cold Press Watercolor Paper, sprinkled with Ranger Ink's Princess Gold Embossing Powder and heat set.
Now I could watercolor the 3 colors in the challenge. I thought I would use blue for the flowers just for a change of pace. To watercolor I used Altenew's Watercolor Brush Marker Refills in: Sea Breeze, Fresh Lemon, Lime, Citrus Burst and Sweet Leaf. They are liquid watercolors and very intense, so a little goes a long way. This is how they look:
I painted with my Silver Brush Black Velvet #8. It holds a good amount of water and has a wonderful point. My style is sketchy - always leave white "sparkles".
Once dried, I stamped a background text stamp over the entire image with's White Pigment Ink. It is very faint, but in real life you can see it. I wanted to break up the solid blue background created with the liquid watercolor.
The background was cut with my all-time favorite: Sugar Pea Designs' Card Front Elements Builder II - just nice little subtle dots along the edges. The sentiment and butterfly is from Pink and Main's Wildflower Silhouettes (retired) and a few Fashion Gold embellishments from Spellbinders to finish it off!
Thank you to Color Throwdown Challenge for inviting me to be the Featured Stamper. Always a pleasure!
