Water colored Friend

Good Monday Morning Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made with the Stampin Up set called Happiness Shared. Last week I spent some time with a friend to share some water coloring tips with her. She didn't really need any help as she is awesome on her own.

This is one of the images I worked with and I wanted to finish it up and so I sit down to create this card yesterday. I challenged my friend to take her image and make a card too.

I used some very vanilla for my card base which is a 5 inch square and then I followed that up with some old olive card stock and the olive DS paper is from the Jolly Holiday paper pack. I then pulled out my Lacey Squares Nestabilties die and used the largest one along with some crushed curry card stock. I then added some old olive and more DSP, this one from the Razzleberry lemonade pack. I used a circle nestie to cut out the flower, that I had previously colored with crushed curry and old olive ink. 

I added some gold pearls and tied a half bow with some very vanilla satin ribbon. The sentiment comes from the "You're a Gem" stamp set. The main piece as well ass the scalloped square piece are both added to the card with some tap.

OK, now head on over to Wendy's Blog to see the card she made with her watercolored image!

Thanks for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING

Your watercoloring is fabulous! Wish you lived closer so you could show me - lol! I love the look but tend to shy away from using that coloring technique.
