Wonderful Watercolors Birthday Card

I finally put this stamp set together today and of course I just HAD to play with it. I LOVE everything about this set. I LOVE the two step stamping and the images.

I think I am stuck on pink lately!!! It's hard not to be when you have these three colors that go SO well together. Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose. With the three of them you just can't go wrong.

The stamp set is by Stampin' Up! and it's called "Wonderful Watercolors." There are 12 images to this set, I used two for this card. I look forward to playing with the other 10. That should keep me busy for a while. Like I don't have anything else to do!!! It's that I don't WANT to do anything else.

To color the images I used markers. On the first step I colored in the outline of the flowers using Regal Rose and the outline of the leaves and stem in Old Olive. Then I took the second step image and I did use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up my flowers and leaves. I didn't color in the stems on this one. I just colored the leaves in using Certainly Celery and I colored in the flowers using Pretty in Pink.

The background is the Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss folder. I really like that folder.

After assembling this card I realized that I use this layout WAY too much and I'm hoping to get it out of my head and move on to something new or at least different!!!

It was a fun and very quick card to make too!!

Thank you SO much for visiting and I hope you do something creative today!

What a lovely card Wanda! I'm not much of a pink girl but I think that the white and green help balance it out. Such a peaceful card!
