2011 Artisan Award blog hop Day 5

Here we go..... Half way through our hop. For those of you who are new to the concept; there are ten winners of the Artisan award. We are posting one project a day for ten days (Some of us will be doing an eleventh day). We each have a link to the next Artisans blog so you can just hop from blog to blog and see all of our creations. We have created a circle for you so you will end up back here if this is where you started. If you are already in the cycle you should have just come from Jenn Picard's blog. I have really enjoyed getting a closer look at her designs!
Now here is my project for today. I think this is my favorite card out of all five. I love how all of the elements flow so well and it looks simple.
I stamped the image on Watercolor paper with Staze on ink. then I watercolored the image using aquapainters. I used Stampin' Up!'s window sheets over the stamped image. I lined all four edges with Sticky strip. First I laid the Ribbon down on the bottom strip with a ruffled look. Then I put Silver Glass glitter on all of the remaining edges. The glitter now has more of a champagne look to it from oxidizing. I love how the glass glitter changes like that!

The flowers were created with the scallop circle punch. I punched out two of each color and soaked them in Stampin' Mist, crumpled them into the shape I wanted and let them dry.
Have a great weekend, Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to check out Summer Stone's Project today, it is fabulous as usual!
