Awash With Flowers
March 31, 2010
I've been busy stamping with the brand new stamp set, Awash with Flowers. It is a preview stamp set from the upcoming 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog, but you can purchase it now through April 30th. And just wait until you see how versatile it is!!!
For this card, I started with a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" piece of Whisper White card stock, folded in half to create the card base. I added a layer of Whisper White card stock measuring 3-3/4" x 5" to create some dimension.
The flower panel is a 2-1/2" x 3-3/4" piece of watercolor paper layered onto a 2-3/4" x 4" piece of Basic Black card stock and raised with stampin' dimensionals.
The flowers were stamped with Black Staz-on ink and colored using the Soft Subtles Watercolor crayons with an aquapainter.
The great thing about watercoloring is it doesn't have to be perfect! In fact, it actually looks better if you color outside the lines!
We'll be making this card at my upcoming Flower Power Stamp-a-Stack on Friday, April 16th. If you live in the Kokomo, Indiana area, you certainly don't want to miss this fun card class. I'll have class kit by mail and tutorial information available soon for those that are unable to attend.
There are also several floral stamp sets on special during the month of April. Check out the sales flyer and hop on over to my Stampin' Up! website to place your order.
