Fifth Avenue Floral – Reinker watercolor

Last week, I demonstrated the Reinker Watercolor technique to a couple people who missed my class so they would know how to make up their card samples.  Since I had the Fifth Avenue Floral rose on my table, I decided to finish it off into a card!  I used Pixie Pink and Pretty in Pink reinkers for this one…I love the combination!  I tried to leave a little more white space on this, too! 

My base card is Pixie Pink and I added a strip of Sweet Always Designer Paper on the left side.  Then I stamped "Life is what happens…" from Full of Life** on Whisper White, using my markers to color it Pixie Pink and Chocolate Chip.  I layered it onto Chocolate Chip and then placed the Rose on dimensionals over the top edge.  I cut two Little Leaves Sizzlets with my Big Shot  from Certainly Celery and placed them under the Rose.  This is a pretty simple card that packs a lot of WOW, I think!  I still have several Rose samples sitting on my desk…I’m sure you’ll be seeing them in the future!

Remember…my VACATION SPECIAL is going on NOW!


**Full of Life is still available on the Dormant List.
