Hello! I'm super excited today to be joining in with some of the recent Growing in Unity gals and hopping along with the newest Stamp of the Week. You should have arrived here from Patti aka scrapunzel1 - if not, head back to An-Jenic to start at the beginning!
The new stamp of the week is so fresh and fun and summery! And I couldn't resist a little more watercoloring - so here is my first card with it:
I picked up some new watercolors recently at Michael's - they were the same inexpensive brand I had used before, but this set was iridescent! So pretty! So I created a simple watercolor wash for the background, then stamped my image and sentiment over the top with Versafine ink. Added some flicks of color, some Icicle Stickles to the centers, a few enamel dots, some rounded corners, and some jute twine tied on a tiny Tim Holtz paperclip to finish it off. Mounted some bright papers from a DCWV paper pad at an angle on a white cardbase to use as a backdrop.
Next, I decided to go with a much simpler and more modern feeling card:
For this one, I head embossed the image and sentiment on vellum, tore the bottom edge, then used machine stitching to attach over some pattern paper from Glitz Designs. I guess it still has a bit of a watercolor feel to it anyway, doesn't it? Oh well! I matted that in white, then mounted on a cardbase made with some of the new Simon Says Stamp gray cardstock - LOVE the color of it!
