Challenge Up Your Life #3

Challenge Up Your Life #3 is online and the theme for the next 2 weeks is the color combo "turquoise & brown". Here is my inspiration card for you: 

I created the background with the beautiful "Flower Dot Pattern" stamp from Hero Arts. I stamped a piece of watercolor paper with Versamark. I then sprinkled white embossing powder over my Versamark stamped background and embossed it with my heat gun. Afterwards, I put a lot of water to the top of the embossed background and I added Peacock Feathers Distress inks and Twinkling H2O with a paintbrush before I left it dry. The cute bear is from the Mama Elephant stamp set called "Carnival Cupcake". I colored him with Distress inks. The sentiment is from Mama Elephant too ("Bountiful Blessings"). I also heat embossed it with white embossing powder on vellum paper. 

This was my last guest designer spot for Challenge Up Your Life! Thanks again to Manuela & Martina and to ALL the wonderful team! It was so fun ladies!!!

Have a lovely day!
