Watercolored Blooms

It took me a while, but I finally broke down and got this beautiful floral set. I loved it from the start, but figured I already had lots of floral stamps, so I resisted. After seeing so many beautiful creations and realizing I didn't have a floral set to watercolor...I couldn't resist any longer! I had so much fun water coloring these flowers, so I'm sure you will see me using this set a lot.

I stamped the flowers with VersaMark on Whisper White card stock and embossed with white embossing powder. Then I used my aqua painter and re-inkers to watercolor the flowers and the background.

Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, Oval All
Ink: VersaMark, and various to watercolor
Card stock: Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Whisper White
Accessories: Bermuda Bay Polka-dot Grosgrain, Scalloped Oval punch, white embossing powder, heat tool, aqua painter & X-acto knife (to cut slot for ribbon)

Sorry I've been posting so irregularly lately, but I've been busy enjoying the beautiful weather we've been having. Need to take advantage while we've got it, right? Thanks for stopping by to visit. :-)

Wow, your watercolouring is just amazing! As a novice painter I still struggle with shading and blending so I am always in awe of crafters who do is so beautifully.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Hi Lynn
Thank you so much for visiting my blog - here I am on a return visit to you!
This card is so beautifully coloured and I love the flower stamp. I have just bought the Oval All greetings (my first SU purchase) and I absolutely love them.
