Blooming Love

Good Morning Peeps!

Today's card is made with a fun new to me set from SU called "Blooming with Love". This is a great set to color. Either watercolor or with your markers or whatever you like. The only problem I had was with the wheelbarrow, I have this same problem anytime I try to watercolor with brown, it tends to turn yucky, sorta red and yucky. I just ended up paper piecing it. Next time I will just make it gray.

I stamped the flower pots and the watering can on separate scraps of watercolor paper and colored them and then cut them out and popped them up with some dimensionals.

I used rose red and old olive to color in the flowers and grass area. I used basic gray for the watering can and alot of really rust for the flower pots.

I used my slit punch to thread my ribbon through and tied a knot to the side. I also used the new SU edge punch for the chocolate chip layer which is some DS paper form the bella rose pack, the same paper used for the wheel barrow.

The challenge this week on the Our Creative Corner Blog was to add a doodle. I added some doodles around my main image panel and also around the sentiment circle.

Well, that is all for today, Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!
