Fuchsia for Friendship

Today, I have a new project featuring the new Paint Fusion stamps.  Last week, I played with the Paint Fusion technique and had so much fun.  This week, I wanted to show the versatility of these stamps and play with my Spectrum Noir markers.   For my card, I stamped the images on my cardstock.  I layered the fuchsia and leaf with a background and sentiment from the Kanji stamp line.

I used digi papers from the Tranquil Moments Collab at Brownie Scraps to create the background that I wanted.  Then I ran the stamped images through my printer aligning my digi paper layout with the location of the stamps.  I used the same masking technique with sticky notes that I used to layer the stamps themselves.  I layered my printed topper with brown and turquoise cardstock.

Spectrum Noir Recipe
Leaf: DG3, JG6
Purple Petals: LV1, LV2, LV3
Pink Petals: PP3, PP5, DR3

Since I'm still learning the Spectrum Noir system, I watched the instructional video, particularly the section on coloring flowers.  I used the sheet that comes with the Paint Fusion stamps to guide my color choices.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Crafts and Me #68 - use a new image
2. Crafty Purple Frog - flower power

Here are the products I used for this project:

You'll be in a drawing for a $100 gift certificate (wow, wow, wow)!  to spend at the Crafter's Companion store.  You'll be helping me because the designer with the most "referrals" gets a spending spree as well.
