I must be in a water-coloring mood since today's card just lends itself to water-coloring. I selected Elements of Style because I wanted to take a break from Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas cards. I love this stamp set because of the vintage blooms, birds and flourishes.
I stamped the image on watercolor paper with Basic Black Classic Inkand then water-colored it with an aqua painter using Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and So Saffron for the middle of the flower. As you can see I got a little carried away with the Log Cabin Smooch Spritz but I love the way it turned out.
The ribbon is the 1/2" Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding from the Holiday Mini Catalog. The pattern paper is Love Letter Designer Series Paper.
And now I think it's time for some more blog candy. Just leave a comment on my blog telling me what is your #1 Stampin' Up! item on your Christmas Wish list.
