MC July/12 - Secondary - How to Fly

While thumbing through my flower stamp catalogue, I came across this waterlily corner stamp by Beeswax that I recently acquired. Loved the look of it and really wanted to use it. One of the stamp challenges called for using the secondary colors on a color wheel and that's how this card began.

I'm also using a Flourishes waterlily and a Quietfire Design quote stamp, and by clicking on the card image you can see more details and descriptions. I think I neglected to say in my details, that I used a coat of Iridescent Medium on the large waterlily to give it a nice sheen.

It also fits for these challenges:
Inspiration Avenue - use something to do with the word FLY
MIM Challenge  #57 use Secondary colors on Color wheel (Green, Purple & Orange)
Flourishes  #177 Sentiment as a focal
Pile it On Challenge  #28 Something to do with water

Hi there, love this card - the corner stamping and colouring is just beautiful and so compliment the sentiment you've used. How's it going with your self-imposed challenge to only use your scraps ... have you bottomed the pile yet? I know I'm struggling :)) Elizabeth xx
