Best Thoughts Set


Happy Tuesday Peeps!!!

Those of you who follow my bog regularly know a few things about me, I love flower cards and I love to watercolor.

I have been playing around with this set, Stampin Up's Best Thoughts,
 it is a hostess set and is my favorite set for cards lately.

Coloring is relaxing and is something I love to do,
So when I have reached the point where I feel the need to escape a bit I head to my craft table and make something pretty! 

I colored up these two flowers using Watermelon Wonder and Rich Razzleberry.
I decide to make similar cards with different sentiments.


I used a piece of DSP from the Pretty Petals paper stack and the sentiment comes from the Build a Birthday stamp set.
I stamped the image on these with Black stazon onto some Naturals Ivory card stock and colored using my Aqua Painter and ink pads.
I fussy cut them out and mounted the flower to an oval I cut with the Ovals Collection framelits.


I embossed the back piece with the Elegant Circles EF using my Big Shot.
The DSP on this card is from the Bohemian pack.
The sentiment on this one is from the Cottage Greetings stamp set.
Hope you like my little card set, I enjoyed making them very much. If you are interested in any of the products to make these cards, just click on any of the links below and start shopping.

These are all very beautiful.

Is there a video that I could watch as to how to do the shading on the flower using my aqua painter?

I made a mess of my flower today.

Thanks for your help.
