You Make Me Happy

Today’s blog post features a card made with the absolutely stunning Stampers Anonymous stamp by Tim Holtz called Glorious Bouquet CMS325 with a touch of Ornate Trimmings CMS326, two of my immediate favorites!! Both of these stamp sets will be shipping THIS WEEK! Yay!!
This is a very simple card, but it isn’t quick to make. I stamped  a corner of the Glorious Bouquet stamp onto the corner of some Distressed Mixed Media Heavystock in Ground Espresso Archival Ink. Then I watercolored with Distress Markers in all the various greens and purples. The water coloring is what takes all the time, but it is so worth it! I added one of the sentiments from the Glorious Bouquet set, and added a couple of the Ornate Trimmings stamps along the right side in Antique Linen Distress Ink.
 I LOVE the Ornate Trimmings!! I have so many plans for them! They can be so versatile - lovely, lacy, and feminine or bright, bold, and masculine. Stay tuned for more cards I’m currently working on with this set. If it isn’t on your wish list it should be. :-)

Beautiful, still learning how to use watercolors.

This is sooooo beautiful! I can't wait to get my Glorious Bouquet! :D
The examples really made me want the Ornate Trimmings too, but can't afford everything in one month... thankfully there's more months (and orders!) coming ;)

Really lovely. The colors are beautiful. Soft and "Victorian."

So pretty and it makes me want to watercolor. The trimmings stamp is very cool. I guess I had better check those out!
