More Day 1 cards........

......from the Stretch Your Stamps 2 class.  Today I worked on a watercolor background card technique, and like Kristina did, made 2 cards from the finished panel.

SYS2 Watercolor Emboss Resist Day 1



SYS2 Watercolor Emboss ResistDay1

My background stamp is Hero Arts Dots & Flowers, and after embossing it in white on watercolor paper, I pulled out my old Hero Arts watercolor wheel and did a rainbow of colors down the card.  In both cases, the die-cut love is another of Wplus9's Seasonal Sentiments, and I paired them with one of  the "you"s from Simon'sYou set on the first card, and on the second card, the "with" is from Winnie & Walter's The Big, the Bold and the Happy set.   

Thanks for visiting tonight, I'll see you tomorrow for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

  1. They are both so pretty, Lin! Love the rainbow of colors!

    Isn't it fun pulling out our older background stamps and giving them some love again? The Dots and Flowers is a perfect stamp for that technique! ♥
