I love this card because it is bright colors, has PINK in it, has FLOWERS in it and it says SMILE! Who wouldn’t love getting this card in the mail for a special occasion or just because? I know I would! This card uses the new Peaceful Petals Stamp Set from the Occasions Mini Catalog! I stamped the large flower image 3 times on the left hand side. TIP: Stamp the middle one first and then stamp on either sides, this helps with spacing a little more. I then stamped the Smile greeting from the Happy Day Stamp Set on the bottom of the Calypso Coral cardstock. After stamping the greeting, I ran it through my Big Shot (you could use your Texture Impressions Machine for this too) with the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder only on the top 3/4 of the cardstock! For the center flower, stamp the flower with Stazon Ink (so it doesn’t bleed when you start coloring the petals) and then using your Blender Pens and ink from your ink pad or re-inkers, color the flower petals as desired! Just dab in the ink and color till it runs out and then go back for more. Of course, I love a bold image so I was going back for more often. You could also add shading to the petals and so much more. I love this kind of watercoloring….to me it is kind of like faux watercoloring! You can really add lots of POP to your project with this kind of coloring!
