Wishing You Joy

I decided to try out the watercolor samples that were in the current Simon Card Kit, and I'm really pleased with them!


supplies: white, black, and Surf Blue card stock, Studio Katia Floral Trimmings, Daniel Smith watercolors from kit, Simon's Wishing die and matching Sending & Wishing sentiment, Memory Box Calais Butterflies, trimmed

I stamped the flowers on watercolor paper, watercolored them, then fussy-cut the right edge, trimmed the left edge, and mounted on a Surf Blue card base, along with a skinny black strip.  Then I added my die-cut and stamped sentiment and the little butterflies.

These colors are perfect for spring, and I'm definitely planning to get more watercolor palettes!

YOu are a master of the fussy cut, and I am envious. Lovely card, perfectly layered.

So clever to cut along just the right side, Lin. Beautifully done.

Fabulous card Lin - love how the flowers form a border with the blue background.
