Here is another watercolor paper!! It is very relaxing!! I stamped the cute elephant and balloon with "Archival Ink". I did  cover the borders with "painters tape" and I used "Distress Ink" for the watercoloring.
Stamp: Simon Says Stamp "Birthday Celebration".  (new stamp for my birthday!!)
Distress ink and marker: weathered wood, tattered rose, seedless preserves, squeezed lemonade, peacock feathers and frayed burlap.

On the balloon I put "wink of stella" and "glossy accents".

Wish Big!

I began to diecut a watercolor cardstock with the Lawn Fawn "Stitched Square Stackables" die. Then I diecut the grassy border.
I stamped the dog and the balloons with "archival ink". I mask the balloon in the centre and stamped the other two, so that they stay behind.
Then I put tape (ATG) behind the watercolor cardstock, press it on my "non-stick craft sheet" and began watercoloring.

I used distress ink and markers: brushed corduroy, aged mahogany, wild honey, crushed olive, twisted citron (this is the first time I use it, a very bright color), peacock feathers and picked raspberry.

Lawn Fawn stamps: "Critters at the Dog Park", "Birthday Tags" and "Party Animal".

I heart you

For this card I watercolor the background with "Distress ink"- peacock feathers and tumbled glass. And for the cute critters I used "Bruynzeel"-aquarel pencils. 

The stamps are from "Lawn Fawn"- Toboggan Together and Violet's ABC's.
Also the die with the cute scalloped border is from "Lawn Fawn"- Scalloped Rectangle Stackables.

The border I heat embossed with "WOW"- vintage amethyst. Love that sparkle!!

Sending flurries of love

I love this January Card Kit of Simon Says Stamp. I did heat embossed the "snowflakes" with "WOW" raspberry coulis embossing glitter.
 I did watercolored them with distress ink "peacock feathers".
And I used the "SSS" A2 Card Curved Edge for the watercolor cardstock.

I love the embossing glitter, it gives the card a shiny look.
