Bloom With Happiness

Have you ever pulled out a stamp set and looked at it in a whole new light? In the past I would have stamped this flower in a pastel color on pastel paper for a tone on tone appearance, that would be pretty enough but it certainly could not compare to this bold color choice. It seems simple but a real "light bulb" moment for me... yes I am blond :) Every stamp in your collection has the potential to create various looks and evoke a new and different feeling each time you use it. I cut out a double layer scallop circle just missing the top so the card opens from the top. I also cut out 2 sizes of labels nestabilities in real red and WW and stamped the sentiment along the bottom and Periced in between the verse. the flower is embossed on water color paper and colored with reinkers using an aquapainter cut out and layered.

I added this sweet tear drop pearl hanging from the black ribbon, it adds a touch of sheen and an unexpected element.

I love your water coloring! I have this set too and for sure will ink it up again soon. I have marked you in my favorites.
