Flower Patch and Irresistibly Yours Paper

Today is Thursday and that means a new challenge at Create with Connie and Mary. This week is a fabulous sketch for you to try!
I stuck with the sketch and made my card square. I think I am one of the few people who loves square cards. 

Stampin' Up! card made with Flower Patch stamp set. Uses Irresistibly Yours paper
My background and Strawberry Slush flower were made with the Irresistibly Yours dsp from Sale-a-bration. It was my first time using this lovely paper and now I know why everyone is raving about it - it was so fun to see the patterns magically appear! 

To make the background, I spritzed the background with Pistachio Pudding ink and a bit of water. I wanted a variation in color which really showed up in the top panel but not so much in the other. I still love the look though.

The large Strawberry Slush flower was made with the polka dot pattern of Irresistibly Yours dsp. I stamped the flower and once the ink dried, I rubbed over the stamped image so the dots would pop. What a fun way to give the flower, not only some pattern, but dimension as well.

All supplies are Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Flower Patch, Simply Wonderful (Sale-a-bration)
Paper: Irresistibly Yours (Sale-a-bration)

Well I hope I inspired you enough that you will try the sketch for yourself! At the very least, head over to Create with Connie and Mary challenge blog for more inspiration.

Oh.My.Goodness! How pretty is this!? Love how you spritzed the DSP and achieved that sort of watercolory look! Beautiful card!
