Okay…a little about my card.  I LOVE the idea of watercoloring but well…I’m not that great with it and it TAKES ME FOREVER!!!  We will NOT discuss how LONG it took me to do this little image!  Usually it take me longer to take my picture, crop and copyright it, do a blog post then post it around then it take for me to make a card.  Today..NOT!!!  But I do think it turned out pretty and the watercoloring isn’t half bad!  I’m REALLY looking forward to the NEW ALCOHOL MARKERS Stampin’ Up! is coming out with!

Here’s the details:

  • Pink Pirouette – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Stamp greeting using Basic Black
  • Watercolor Paper – 2 1/2 x 3 1/4.  Stamp image using Stazon JetBlack ink.  The vases are colored using Smoky Slate and blender pen, the stems/leaves are all Pear Pizzazz, the flowers are Primrose Petals and blender pen.
  • I folded some Pear Pizzazz Chevron Ribbon and added to the left side then just did a ‘tail’ on the right side and added this behind the panel.  I added the panel using dimensionals.
  • To finish it off I took a Pink Pirouette medium button, tied some white baker’s twine on it and added it to the panel using dimensionals.
