Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern ~ Kylie's International Highlights Winners Blog Hop

Hello lovelies!
I am excited to be part of Kylie Bertucci's amazing International Highlights Winners Blog Hop.
I was lucky enough to be chosen as one of the winners to take part in the celebratory blog hop so a big thank you to anyone that voted for my card!

If you missed seeing the card that I entered in this, you can see it here.

Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to see links to all the other amazing blogs that took part. 

I have also listed all the products that I have used in today's project at the bottom of this post, all of which are available in my store here.

Here's a look at my finished card.
I have kept this card VERY simple but I wanted something fresh that really focused on those absolutely gorgeous ferns!
I think I am going to be using this whole suite to death, it's just gorgeous!!

I have stamped three ferns in a mixture of Just Jade, Old Olive and Pretty Peacock. The tip to add a little fun effect is that I have inked them up and then spritzed them lightly with a Stampin' Spritzer before stamping them down. After stamping I also went in with a Water Painter and added a touch more water in places for a fun watercoloured stamped look!
When doing techniques like these that involve adding water, it's a good idea to use a heavier cardstock. For this particular card I have used Shimmery White Cardstock.

Here's a look at the fun colour combination I have used for this card.
I am just loving Just Jade. It's definitely one of my favourite new colours!

Here's a close up look at the finished card.
I have not actually added too much to this card.
I have wrapped some fun Linen Thread around the card several times and tied a bow.
I then added some of the gorgeous Elegant Faceted Gems. These things are so pretty!!

In the background you may also notice some splatters.
I have used a Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker to add some splatters along with some Wink of Stella. 

Here's a look at the inside of my card where I have added layers of Crumb Cake and Whisper White with a small strip of some Basic Black. I have repeated similar stamping in the same colours as the card front and added another sentiment stamped in Memento Black from the Fancy Phrases Stamp Set.
