For my design, I used this Impatiens image which is only one of the amazing floral stamps in this set. Mr. Rubbernecker has really come up with some beautiful floral images that you won't want to miss out on.
I heat embossed my Impatiens with black embossing powder, and then I watercolored it with Adirondack inks (Red Pepper, Cranberry, Pesto, and Lettuce). I just love the intensity of these beautiful colors with the black embossing. I cut out the image and applied to the cardstock.
The Red Pepper and Cranberry diluted with watercolors reminded me of Stampin' Up's retired Cameo Coral, so that's the cardstock I used on the bottom. It's hard to see in the photo, but I did score the Cameo Coral cardstock in a striped 1/4" pattern.

I wanted the focus of my design to be on this beautiful image, so I kept the overall design clean and simple.
