Challenge #20 Inspiration with Channin

Hello everyone!! It's Channin here with some inspiration for Challenge #20!

So this time I went down diagonally and chose Metallics, Dew Drops and Use Puns. I actually did this exact same combo for my first card for this challenge but surprisingly today's card has a very different look and feel. 

First, I stamped and gold embossed the gorgeous succulent/cacti arrangement from the Waffle Flower Potted stamp set on a 5" x 6 1/2" panel of watercolor paper. Next, I stamped and gold embossed a sentiment from the WF Planted stamp set

Then using the smooshing technique and distressed inks; Shaded Lilac, Peacock Feathers, Evergreen Bough, and Moved Lawn I colored my watercolor panel. I focused my smooshing mainly over the succulent/cacti image. Once my inks were dry, I attached my panel to my card base then added glossy accents dew drops. 

I hope you enjoyed and were inspired to give this wonderful challenge a try!
