Happy Watercolor - CCMC291

I ordered the Happy Watercolor set awhile ago, but this is the first time I've used it. I love how the splotches in the back look like they're painted but are actually from a stamp. This card is based on the sketch challenge at Create With Connie and Mary.


Stamps: Happy Watercolor, Papillon Potpourri

Ink: Blushing Bride, Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding, Versamark

Paper: Coastal Cabana, Basic Black, Pistachio Pudding, Whisper White card stock

Misc: Black embossing powder, Decorative Dots embossing folder, Small Butterfly punch, rhinestones, black ribbon (retired)

  2. I love the way you lined up the watercolored image and stamped the branch/flower sideways. The embossing looks great paired up with everything else! Thanks for playing Create with Connie & Mary this week!

  3. I love how you stamped the panel! What a creative idea and a great use of the space! And that butterfly is a perfect accent! Thanks for playing the challenge at Create with Connie and Mary!

  4. Oh, this is so pretty! I like how you placed the flower stem horizontal with the soft watercolor-look behind it! The embossing and butterflies are a lovely touch! Thanks for joining us for the Create with Connie and Mary Sketch challenge this week!

  5. How fun to put that stamp in it's side...what a GREAT look! Thanks for playing along this week in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!
