New Color and a Birthday wish

Hi Everyone! I had a chance to play with some of the new colors for the new 2012-2013 Stampin' Up! catalog. Today I gave Gumball Green a shot. I had the sets Apothecary Art and Papaya Collage out on my desk still, and decided to ink them up one more time too!  I needed to make a Birthday card for someone special, and these sets will do just the trick! :)  Here is my card -




I think it turned out great! I found inspiration for this card on the Case Study challenge blog. I stamped the Apothecary art image onto Naturals white with black Stazon, then water colored the blooms with the Gumball Green re-inker and my aqua painter. I then stamped it again, colored some of the blooms, cut them out, and popped them up onto the same blooms of the first ones I colored. I added a little bit of Dazzling diamonds onto each of the centers of the blooms for a little bit of extra detail. So what do you think of Gumball Green?? Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! Details below -

I am not much of a green fan, and when I saw SU!'s gumballgreen, I could only sigh, and knew I'd need to see some inspiration. I saw your card via pinterest, and I would have never believed it was gumball green! Your card is gorgeous! Thank you for sharing!
