SSS Flickr Challenge #58 Cards

Hi Everyone!
Today I entered this card into the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge #58 where the challenge was Take Some Time To Color: add color to your cards with any medium you prefer using SSS Products:
This is the SSS Presents & Ornaments stamp set that I used to make this card:
First I cut out a piece of Strathmore watercolor paper with the SSS Stitched Rectangle Dies. Then I heat embossed the ornaments from the stamp set on the smooth side of the watercolor paper with Ranger Platinum Gold Embossing Powder; I then smooshed the Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink Pad on an acrylic block & used a wet brush to add the background color:
After that, I cleaned my acrylic block & then smooshed on Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry and Mustard Seed. I used a wet brush to apply color to each ornament:
After this I used the EK Success Powder Tool so that the embossing I was about to do would not stick to other areas of the watercolor piece:
 I then stamped the sentiment "Merry Christmas" with the Platinum Gold embossing powder (note that I use fun foam underneath my piece to get clearer stamping):
I used my heat tool to set the embossing. This is the piece after the sentiment is heat embossed:
These are the ink pads that I used, note that I glue a piece of paper with the actual ink pad color & name along the side of each ink pad:
Following this I again used the the SSS Stitched Rectangle dies to cut out a piece of vellum then adhered the main panel to this piece. These two were put on a turquoise cardstock piece:

I did enter another card for the challenge the other day:
I used the oh-so-gorgeous SSS Winter Flowers stamp set to make this card.

The SSS Flickr challenges are such a fun way to interact with other card makers. It is so very inspiring to see other card maker's creations. Check out the SSS Flickr Group for more info! To see the cards on my Flickr page, click here. <---

For all my American family & friends: Happy Thanksgiving - peace & blessings to all!!
