Thank you everyone for your congratulations! I am still floating on Cloud 9 today!
This minute I saw this new Peace Within stamp set in the new catalog, I had to have it. First, it has a kitty cat that looks like my Bleach and second, it has an Adirondack chair that I love to sit in by the beach! Then, it also has a basket of wildflowers! Now…normally, I am not a big fan of coloring, a little goes a long way. No patience, I guess. But…lately, I’ve been on a coloring kick! I even completed 20 cards for a design assignment that had watercoloring on them!
I knew I wanted to make a square card for the LateNight Stampers Design Team Challenge this week (unusual shaped cards). The base card is 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 of Melon Mambo cardstock, then I layered 5×5 layer of Pretty in Pink. The chair image is stamped on Shimmer White with Black Stazon ink and watercolored with Stampin’ Markers and my AquaPainter. Then it is layered on Close to Cocoa and Melon Mambo cardstock. The designer paper is from the Razzleberry Lemonade package and ties the two pink colors together. I punched a hole so I could wrap the Pretty in Pink Striped Ribbon around the upper left corner. The greeting is from Peace Within stamp set, too, and stamped with Black Stazon on Shimmer White and punched with the Large Oval punch. That is layered on the Scallop Oval punch and finally layered on the Curly Label punch. I added two small 1/2 pearls from the Pretties Kit to the bottom right corner.
