Wonderful Watercolors Thank You Card!

I just got this new Stampin' Up! set "Wonderful Watercolors" and I HAD to play with it. I thought I'd make a thank you card because I need a few of them this week.

As you know I have been doing the Wednesday Sketch Challenge on Split Coast Stampers every week or almost every week. I try not to miss one. And if I do I make sure I print out the layout. I keep them in an album. I don't have all the earlier layouts in the album but I'm working on getting them in there. But I do have the ones from when I started through this weeks one.

I found the layout that fit with the size of the flower in this set, it was #SC162. Now I do remember quite a while back making a card using this layout. Don't ask what card, I don't remember and I don't even know if I still have it, but I do have the layout!!!

I used Almost Amethyst and I found some Almost Amethyst decorative paper I had sitting around here and thought I'd run with that. I have a lot of decorative paper that I need to start using up!!!! And of course cards like this don't use much decorative paper. But on the brighter side of that, you can make more of the same card!!!

My "thank you" came from the Stampin' Up! set "Holiday Blitz." Another set I use a lot. I stamped the words using black StazOn and punched it out with the 1-1/4" punch. I punched out a 1-3/8" Always Amethyst circle and the black scallop behind it.

To color in the image I used the Lavender Lace marker because the Almost Amethyst one was just too light to see. I colored in the stems and leaves with the Certain Celery marker and I stamped the image on Whisper White card stock.

Then I inked up the outline image using Always Artichoke. I did use my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the outline on the image I had just stamped. I sponged the edges using Almost Amethyst ink and then taped all the layers together. It's a pretty easy card, just lots of layering!! But SO worth it!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
