Choose Happiness

Another watercolor card today.  Using images from the stamp set Choose Happiness I heat embossed the flowers and leaves with white embossing powder on watercolor paper.

I added color to the flowers and leaves with Watermelon Wonder and Mint Macaron Stampin' Write Markers and then misted the paper heavily with water so the color spread.  I then went back in and added some more color with the markers .

Sweetbriar Rose Watercolor

During the pre-order time of the new catalog I placed a small order of the In-Colors and finally got a chance to play with them.
I used the stamp Sweetbriar Rose and heat embossed the image with white embossing powder on watercolor paper.
Using the Stampin' Write markers in Watermelon Wonder and Mint Macaron I colored a little of the image in and then misted with water and let the colors spread.  I then used an Aqua Painter and Soft Sky and Tip Top Taupe to shade the background.
I mounted the watercolor paper on a piece of Mint Macron and then onto a card base of Tip Top Taupe.

I has such a soft pretty look.  No greeting on this one so I can pull it out for any occasion...always nice to have a few of those kind of cards around.

Goodbye and Hello Again

Thought I ought to pop in and post a few of the cards that I haven't been posting but I have been making.  Each of these cards feature products that are retiring (bye-bye) and products that are sticking around and are in the new catalog.
Saying goodbye to the Painted Blooms designer series paper but glad that the stamp set Feel Goods is sticking around for another year!
So happy that Sheltering Tree is in the new catalog but sad to say goodbye to the retiring In Colors, Baked Brown Sugar and Strawberry Slush.
Don't panic....Swallowtail is in the new catalog! 
Saying goodbye to the stamp set Million & One.

Indescribable Gift

Thought I would pop in with a post and wish you all a Happy Easter.
I love the cherry blossom image from the Indescribable Gift stamp set.
It is so fun to color.  This first card I used the blendabilities markers which have now been discontinued.  The other two cards I used the Stampin' Write markers on.

On this card I embossed the image in white on watercolor paper and used markers, ink refills and an aquapainter to color in the image and add the blue to the background.

Heat embossed the image with gold on Very Vanilla cardstock and colored in with markers.

Thanks for looking-
