It's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where the theme is Red, White, and/or Blue to celebrate the 4th of July. We are showcasing Simon Exclusive Products this week and I'm sharing my card with you today.
I made a deep colored blue panel using my Daniel Smith Watercolor paints. For the blossoms I colored them using copic markers. To fulfill the White theme, I used clear sequins with white background in my shaker and I also used white leaves that were heat embossed on vellums.
Hope you will like it and play with us at SSS W challenge!

Marg, this is stunning! I am in awe of your coloring of those gorgeous flowers, love the delicate vellum leaves. With the shaker and dark bg, it looks like the night sky and full moon are the backdrop. Faved!!!

Oh, Marge, I am swooning over this exquisite card! First of all, it's wonderful to celebrate our Independence Day, Fourth of July! We are blessed. And what a stunning way to celebrate using red, white and blue! WOW! The watercolored base is vibrant and so rich, and I love your flowers -- exquisitely colored. I especially love how you've embossed the leaves on heavy vellum to add the "white" in your card. That it's a shaker is amazing too! You are brilliant and so talented, my friend! I so love your work, and many others do as well! You bless us! Hugs and love! xoxo
