I made this card using a stamp set from the Annual Catalog and a stamp set that is still available to purchase but not in any catalog. I actually made this card a while ago and forgot to post it so consider this a commercial break from the Occasions Catalog.
To make the background of this card, I used an Aqua Painter on Watercolor Paper. The colors I used were Marina Mist, Soft Sky, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Sahara Sand. I put a little ink the top of each ink pad, added a little water to it with the Aqua Painter and then painted it the cardstock. You really need to use Watercolor Paper to do this. Otherwise your regular cardstock might pill. I actually think it turned out pretty well.
The flower is from the stamp set called World Of Dreams (in the Annual Catalog) and the sentiment is from the stamp set called Lovely Amazing You (item # 140594). I keep hoping it will end up in a catalog sometime but even though it is not, it is still available for purchase “until supplies last”.
