Hand Stamped Patterned Floral Paper Card

card 1
 I have been having a ball making my own hand stamped patterned paper this week, as I shared HERE.  I really wanted to break out my Unity stamps and see what I could come up with because I'm super excited about the new Unity blog hop each week on Tuesday night.  I'm so glad that this week's hop was delayed because I  just finished my card and the party just started!

 I finished Pam Garrison's class, Creative Sketchbook, this week and it helped inspire my process while creating this background paper.  I stamped the flower from the Lean on Me set repeatedly in Versamark ink and embossed it in white.  Then I did a wash of different shades of watercolor, pink, brown, and some yellow.  It was pretty, but I decided to treat the petals as more of a pattern and less of a "flower" and began to color them in with colored pencils randomly.  This was so much fun!!!  I made a lavender paper in a similar design that I will share with you next week maybe.  All in all I made four different backgrounds and look forward to using them.  I used my new MFT doily die and gave it a wash of pink watercolor and sponged the edges in Adirondack Ginger and stamped the sentiment in Memories Chestnut.  I added some pearls, seam binding, and a Prima flower for tops.

I love this mix of funky, feminine and sketchy!  Weird, huh?!  I'm linking up to the Unity hop HERE and to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday for their No Designer Paper challenge HERE.  Hope you enjoyed seeing this card.  <3
