Addicted to Stamps and More #60

Hello all! Welcome to yet another lovely challenge at ATSM and the challenge is to make a card using this lovely inspiration picture below..

I really loved the color combo of grey and red, here is my card for you!

I have water colored the glossy paper with grey and then distressed the edges with black ink. Stamped the flower (Kaisercraft) in red Memento ink, to achieve that bright red color I've used a technique called 'over stamping' (please find the tutorial here). Then added glossy accents and finally stamped the sentiment (Kaisercraft- enchanted garden) with black ink.

Closure look of the flower!

Well.. Please visit the challenge blog for more details and kindly play along the challenge to receive some nice digis from our awesome sponsor 'Nicecrane Designs'.

Thank you.. :)
