SDC35: Red, Yellow, Orange - Using Stampotique Stamps

It's time for another Stampotique Designer's Challenge!  This week Kaz has us working with some spicy colors!  Here's the challenge in her words,
"When I took this week for my challenge back in the winter, I thought it would be lovely and summery so I decided to set a colour challenge using the sizzling colours of red, yellow and orange. I should have known better really as I do, after all, live in England. It's been positively Autumnal this month. Rain, wind and grey skies. Yuk. So I'd like you to help us entice the sunshine back to help warm my cold toes!!"
I don't think Kaz is going to be cold for long!  Just check out the HOT inspiration along with all of the details on the challenge blog!

Here's my card to help heat things up for Kaz!  
Beauty Mosaic by Stampotique


To create this look, I started with a white piece of card stock and a white piece of seam binding.  I spritzed both with Tsukineko's Walnut Inks in Terra Cotta and Cherry Blossom.  I dropped a few drops of Daffodil Dye Ink re-inker on them and then spritzed with water to help spread the yellow and then used the heat gun to help speed the drying time.  This is the first time I have used the seam binding tape I received in June for my bday (thanx Kimmy!) and I really had fun with it creating this flower!  There's a good tutorial on how to make a flower like this (using fabric) from Scrappinology on YouTube ... I just used the seam binding instead! :)
