Watercolor Trio

Sorry about the missing post yesterday!  I left the house early, got home late afternoon and just ran out of time to work on anything to post!  I had the best intentions!  lol!

Today I worked on the Colour Q Challenge (CQC32) to use Kiwi Kiss or Old Olive, Groovy Guava or Cameo Coral, Black, Kraft and Very Vanilla.  I chose to use the current Stampin' Up! colors.  Those colors were perfect for the flowers in Stampin' Up!'s Watercolor Trio stamp set!

I started with a base card of Old Olive cardstock.  I punched the corners of Cameo Coral cardstock with the Scallop Trim Corner Punch (still available to order!) for the next layer.  I cut a strip of Kraft cardstock and wrapped Old Olive Satin Ribbon around to the back.  On Very Vanilla, I stamped the three flowers in Old Olive Classic Ink, Cameo Coral Classic Ink and Sahara Sand Classic Ink (substituting for Kraft ink…which we will be getting SOON!  Woohoo!)  I ran the stamped Very Vanilla thru the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder (another item still available to order!), and layered it on Basic Black.  Doesn't Basic Black make the colors POP?  Finally, I inked the Thanks So Much from Watercolor Trio with my Old Olive and Cameo Coral Stampin' Write Markers and stamped it on Very Vanilla.  I punched it with the Large Oval Punch, then layered it on a Scallop Oval from Old Olive cardstock.


I LOVE how this turned out!  What do you think?


Did everyone see that the Twilight cast will be on Oprah today!  I can't wait!!!!  I'm so excited for the new movie, Eclipse, coming out next month!  Anyone else out there addicted to this series?  Oh my!
