Penned & Painted Watercolor

If you love floral stamps, this set is for you! You can create so many different looks with these stamps. It is considered a 2-step set but it actually has 3 steps, if you choose. It has a light, a shadow and an outline. The light or the outline can be used individually for a different look. This set is one of my favorites from the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog. Sadly, it will be retiring at the end of this month. If you want to order this set before it is gone, here is the link to my online store,  https://www.stampinup.com/ecweb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=141938.


For this card, I used the Ticket Tear Border Punch in Gold Foil. This is a new punch and will be available when the new catalog goes live, June 1. Shimmery White card stock was used, it is wonderful for watercoloring! I inked up the stamp and spritzed it with water using my Stampin' Spritzer. It is important to let each layer dry thoroughly, after stamping. I then used a Silver - Black Velvet Watercolor Brush with Marina Mist ink to watercolor the background.

Watercolor Wings

I love Butterflies and this spring have added a Butterfly Box (hibernation box) to my garden. It is more of an ornamental statement but love the idea of a Butterfly Box.
I wish you could see this card in person, it shimmers! I stamped the background first and then stamped the Butterfly. I watercolored the butterfly a beautiful blue, which consists of Smoky Slate, Soft Sky, Marina Mist, Tempting Turquoise and Pacific Point. I embossed the edges with gold embossing powder and applied Wink of Stella shimmer. It is just gorgeous!
