And some more "nice" things...

Good morning everyone! This post will be short and sweet. I'm on the run today.......

Remember when I told you I had pulled out an old set and dusted it off to use? Well, this is the same old set "And everything Nice" just with different images. I plan to use something else today.

This was a simple card. Not only do I like the effect of water coloring, but you can color images so fast with them.

I stamped the image and used my watercolor crayons to color her in. Before I mounted the image on to Handsome Hunter I just touched the brush to my green crayon and then touched the edges that I had torn around the paper. I then mounted that panel on to the card and took a scrap of Handsome Hunter and Garden Green that I added 2 brads to and then placed that below the image panel.

I stamped the flowers from the same image with some Creamy Caramel ink then stamped the sentiment in Handsome Hunter, layered that on to a piece of scrap and adhered that to the card.

This image was also from the same set, And Everything Nice. I stamped the girl and water colored the image. It took me a while to find my old raindrops stamp. It is old, it was one of the first stamps I had purchased from D.O.T.S. and I'm sure that some of you veteran stampers remember that they were Close to My Heart before they were Close to My Heart. That was a long time ago.....

I stamped the raindrops on the Pixie Pink base with Brilliant Blue ink. I then layered a piece of So Saffron to the card with a ribbon strip around that. I placed the image on a piece of Rose Red before applying it to the card with pop dots. I added some sparkle which is hard to see to the raindrops with my white gel pen and my sakura gel pen and I was done.

I hope you like what I did today. I'm now off to play with another "dusty" set.

Be back tomorrow!
