In the Garden

A card to share and some great news too!
There are so many things about stamping that I love! One thing is that stamping gives me a chance to get away for a little bit while still being at home. Even if the little while is during nap time or really late at night or even for just 5 minutes! I also love that I get a chance to watercolor too! It is definitely one of my favorite techniques. The aqua painters are such a great tool! I love using them with the classic inks or the watercolor pencils. I have not tried the watercolor crayons yet, but I have heard good things.

Anyway on to the card! I made this for a friend of mine. She loves being in the garden and it was her birthday! So what a perfect set. We have a lot of birthday's this month! I used the Scene in a Garden set for the Occasions Mini. I stamped it all in with Stazon Timber Brown on to watercolor paper. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to place everything just right. I then colored it all in using the watercolor pencils and the aqua painter. I mounted this onto chocolate chip card stock with dimensionals. I added two folded tabs of so saffron grosgrain ribbon. This then went onto the card base which was very vanilla.

I also wanted to add that Nancy over at iStamp picked my Vintage Bella Toile card for her iPick #32 this week! The other cards and projects that she picked this week were gorgeous! If you have not been to her site, please go! She had a fantastic blog and is very inspiring! I feel so honored! Thank you Nancy!

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!
