Hello Gorgeous

Like everyone else, I've fallen in love with Winnie & Walter's stamps, in particular their beautiful handwritten sentiments.  They have just posted their 2nd Playdate challenge, and here's my take on the inspiration.

W&W Playdate #2

supplies: Winnie & Walter The Big, the Bold, & the Happy and The Big, the Bold, and You, Technique Tuesday Two-Steppin', picked raspberry, bubble-gum, and mowed lawn inks, gold sequins from Lawn Fawn

While I had these stamps out, I decided to make them into a background.

Playdate #2

This one started with watercolor paper, and I stamped the solid flower repeatedly in several pinks, added some leaves here and there, and some touches of yellow in the centers of the flowers.  Then I spritzed the whole panel with water until the colors softened and bled.  After drying thoroughly, I stamped my sentiment from The Big, the Bold, and the Happy in versafine black onyx ink and attached it to a card base.  June is the month of roses and anniversaries, so this will go out quite quickly.....

And one more, for my hubby next week - anniversary #43!!

Playdate, take 3

supplies: Simon's Doll Pink card base, Hero Arts Painted Flower, picked raspberry distress ink and peeled paint distress marker, Winnie & Walter's The Big, the Bold and The Happy and The Big, the Bold, and You for my sentiment, sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and Simon Says Stamp

Pink and green is one of my favorite color combinations, so it was a pleasure making these cards.  We have until June 15 to play to win a guest design spot next month!!

  19. Beauty on paper. Wow. I love #2 and #3. Those watercolored blooms are wonderful - great job scattering the yellow and green in too. Know what you mean about those handwritten sentiments. WW definitely took the market by storm with those.
