I didn't post last weekend because Molly and I went to the Stamp Convention in West Springfield and this past weekend I went to a Stampin Up workshop. I am very behind in reading posts and leaving comments.  This card was started on Thursday and I must confess you are seeing my second attempt at watercoloring this image.  I still am not happy with the coloring, but wanting to finish a card before midnight, I decided to cut around the petals and pop them up, somewhat disguising the fact that I need practice with watercolors.

We haven't been to the Stamp Convention in a couple years for various reasons.  I was a little disappointed to see that it is down to only twenty eight vendors making it very crowded on Saturday.  I think next time I may only go on Sunday, a much more relaxed day.  My favorite find was the Peerless Watercolors sold by Technique Junkie. I have been wanting them for a while and I used them on today's card.  Best new product (to me at least) were the new StazOn pads.   They are smaller and the lids click on.  I used Cloudy Sky to stamp the Artful Stamper (Stamp On It) image on watercolor paper.

I die cut the pink layer and the watercolored piece the same size, then cut down the one on the inside line by hand. A line of washi tape and some brown leaves on an embossed olive layer to keep it from being too centered; a butterfly and some gold dew drops to embellish; all mounted on a white card.

No time to find a challenge to were kind enough to visit anyway.... thank you for stopping by.


  1. You did a beautiful job with your beginning watercoloring, Dora! Your flowers are so pretty and showcased beautifully! Excellent design element with that Washi tape, too! Even if the convention was smaller, it sounds like you had successful shopping!! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell

  2. Love how you turned your watercolored flowers into this fabulous card! The washi tape is a great touch as are the leaves peaking out!
