FTL100......With Sympathy




Good Monday Morning Peeps!!

Today's card share is made with the Fall to Layout #100 on the Clean & Simple blog. I just loved this sketch! I will be using it again.

You know I am loving this new set "Every Moment", I love both of the stamps in the set. Yesterday I used the flower, and also used it on another card you will see tomorrow, so I used the beautiful stamp with the bird sitting in the cattails. I don't know birds, so I am not sure what kind of bird this is, or what color it should be, I am sure it will be alot of different colors as I use it more. I stamped the image onto watercolor paper with black stazon. I colored with Early Espresso, Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight and Bashful Blue with my aqua painter. I stamped the image again and colored the tops of the cattails, cut them out and popped them up. The sentiment I used is from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" stamp set. I stamped with black stazon onto wild wasabi card stock. I used my word window punch to punch it out and attached it to the edge of the watercolor piece, cutting off the end.

I used a MS punch along the bottom of the main panel and pierced across the top. I added some wild wasabi ribbon. I mounted the main image to a piece of wild wasabi and the base of the card is Early Espresso.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
