The plan was last night to go to bed at a sensible hour, I tried but I could not sleep so I got up and worked on my bonus card. I got it all colored and cut out and then I just had to finish the main part and the embellishment this morning.
I am hostessing a swap with some fellow Demonstrators using new stamp sets from the new Occasions Mini catalog that you can order out of of March 1. You are going to love it. If they got their cards to me by the 20th they earned a bonus card from me.
I think this is it….what you think? Will they like it?
This is using the stamp set Bloomin’ Beautiful. I drooled all over the mini catalog when I saw it at Leadership, unfortunatley it was not my mini, but hey I could not help it.
I love to sit and color and beautiful detailed stamp sets are the reason I love Stampin’ Up! so I am glad to see more of them coming back to the main catalog as well as the mini catalogs.
Basic Black, Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise, Watercolor Paper, and Bali Breeze Designer Series Paper.
I stamped everything with Jetblack Stazon, and colored with the aqua painter, using Tempting Turquoise, Brilliant Blue, More Mustard, Going Gray, Old Olive, So Saffron, Basic Gray, Bashful Blue ink. I added white gel pen to the center of the flowers. I cut out a few of the flowers and mini glue dotted them beside the bottom of the pot.
Add a little silver ribbon slide (love ’em) to vanilla taffeta, and black gingham and you are done.
Hope you like it. I have not figured out how to add a watermark on my photos yet, so please if you want to copy the card go ahead, I would be flattered, but please do not submit it for a contest anywhere…thanks!
Have a great Monday, and thanks for stopping in.
Absolutely beautiful. I had to come to your blog to see what you used for colouring. I have been so hooked on pencil crayons / mineral spirits that I forgot about the aqua painter. Guess what I am going to dig out tomorrow. Thank you again for some beautiful work.
