Heartfelt Creations Wednesday

Good morning Heartfelt Creations fans, hope everyone is having a good week so far.  Here is my card for today, this card features some of the new stamps from the "Chateau Gate" collection released last week.  I started by embossing the background with this fun brick embossing folder from Tim Holtz, after embossing the cardstock I lightly inked some areas to give it a bit more dimension.
I stamped all the images on watercolor paper and colored with Inktense pencils, I love the vibrant colors on this line of pencils.
This beautiful image is from the "Mystic Hideaway" set, had a lot of fun coloring it.
I made the flowers with some of the dies from "Carnation Creations" and "Posy Patch", for the leaves I use the dies from the "Decorative Chateau" die set.
I adhered the potted plant and the door with pop dots for dimension.
Make sure to hop over to the HC Blog so you can see all the gorgeous projects the rest of the DT has created.  Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful and creative day.
