Have you seen this lovely new stamp set in the Occasions Catalog? Its called “Beautiful You.” So appropriate because it is such a gorgeous set. Its perfect for watercoloring as well.
On this card I used the “girl with umbrella” stamp for the main image on this soft and simple card. I then used a blender pen and the ink from the lid of the Sweet Sugarplum and Crumb Cake ink pads to watercolor her dress. I stamped the umbrella on a piece of the Designer Series Paper, “Falling in Love” which matches the strip on the right side of the card.
To watercolor with the ink pads… close the ink pad, then squeeze the lid so that it touches the inkpad. Then open the inkpad and there will be a little puddle of ink on the lid. Use the blender pen to “pick up” the ink and color with it. The easiest way to watercolor ever! A pretty piece of the 3/8 Metallic Silver ribbon from the Sale-A-Bration catalog and its all finished. I think a swipe of the wink of stella brush would really offset the “rainy” effect of this card as well. I’ll have to try that next.
