More Little Bits of Happiness!

I really do LOVE this stamp set. It is a Level One Hostess set, and it was the first set I got when I made my new IBC purchases in early April. I especially love it because I've been having fun watercolouring, and it lends itself to that nicely.

The background cardstock is Blue Bayou...probably my favourite colour from the new 'In Colour' range for 2008. The next layer is Soft Sky and is textured cardstock. I have embossed a piece of Cardstock Vellum using the Cuttlebug and one of the emboss folders. This layer is attached using silver brads. The ribbon is Purely Pomegrante Satin Ribbon that was given to me by a friend in the US. I hope that it will be available here some time this year. There is then another small layer of Blue Bayou, then the main image is stamped on Watercolour Paper using Stazon and coloured using an Aquapainter and Classic Ink.

Bed time now!

what a pretty card! very girly and yes I simply love the watercolour effect on that stamp set. I hope to get that set one day as it is a lovely stamp. Love the colours you have put together, and embossing on the vellum is a nice touch.

This card is really lovely, with beautiful colouring...especially looking at it IRL on the shelf at my place. Thanks so much for sending it to me Sam & well done for making Kristina's top 10 for CI challenge 7. Go you! Di :)
