I'm in love......yet again!

Today I've been playing with WPlus9's Watercolored Anemones and here is my first finished card using the set:

Watercolored Anemones

I wanted to try doing a yellow and blue scheme, and I'm pleased with these results.  I REALLY like the Lake House ink by Wplus9!  I won it some time ago from Jennifer McGuire's blog, but haven't really used it until today - what a lovely shade of blue!  My yellow flowers in real life are a bit less gold and more bright, but you get the idea here.  I love the shading stamps that Dawn has provided us, to make the flowers and leaves look more realistic!  After I'd filled my panel with the flowers, I added my new Big Bold Friends die and sentiment from Winnie & Walter; I've been so tickled being able to have "Sending Hugs" easily now more and more from multiple companies, and of course, I must have them all!  Simon is bringing one out today as part of a set of scripty sentiments, and it's on my list, too!

This Watercolored Anemone set uses multiple-step stamping, and Dawn has grouped the parts so that we know what goes with what.  After a few practice stamps, they are pretty easy to work with.  I know I'll be using this one lots; it's really fun to play with!  Thank you, Dawn!
