Happy Everything ...

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I've created a card that could cover a multitude of occasions!
With this sweet Imagine That! Creative Playground 'Pretty Petunias' digi image and this 'Awesome' Penny Black die set, it took no time at all to create this fun & functional card.
What do you think?

 The background paper I have used is 'as old as the hills' and was in a stack of 6x6 cuts I purchased from a SU rep years ago.  I must admit, that was a really good idea she had.  She took all the old 12x12 SU designer paper she had left over in her paper packs ... cut they 6x6 and sold them as a variety pack.  That made for a wonderful variety and who doesn't like a reasonable price to top it off??

I've created this card for the Imagine That! Creative Playground June Challenge which is Anything Goes AND if you use any of their Imagine That! digital stamps as the main focus on your creation, you will receive the Featured Digi Set (outlines & color) FREE!  What a deal and these digis are awesome!  Be sure to pop over to see the ADORABLE stamp set being featured for June!

For today's card, I have printed the 'outline' stamp of the petunia and inserted the 'colored' hummingbird into the scene before printing and coloring.

After printing my image and doing the coloring with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, I didn't like all the 'white space' (I really struggle with white space, lol) so I grabbed a few of my new Tim Holtz oxide ink pads, speared some on my craft mat, sprayed with water and proceeded in drawing some onto a paint brush and FLICKING the background.  Cool ... I'm happier with that!  LOL

I had this scrap of  turquoise cardstock laying on the top of the scrap bin from an earlier project so thought it would be a pretty contrast color to use as my mat panel.  THEN when I decided on my sentiment, there was just enough left to die cut my sentiment panel ... YAY!!  Don't you love it when a plan comes together!  LOL

I popped up the focus panel with dimensional tape, added a few vines and VIOLA!
