Hi everyone. Today's card is for the Splitcoaststampers CAS challenge (#266 - design seeds color chart - still life blues). Don't you just love these colors - they are so pretty!!
I really wanted to watercolor, so decided to pull out my favorite two-step stamps from Stampin' Up! - Gently Falling. This set is perfect for using with watercolor paper. I inked my solid stamp (using markers) with three shades of blue from the color palette, misted with water and stamped onto watercolor paper. Once dry, I used the dark blue to ink the outline stamp, misted with water and stamped overtop ... using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line things up.
I fussy cut the leaves and layered them on top of a piece of cork ... I'm happy with how this turned out. But I can just imagine my son saying "Blue leaves Mom ... really??!" :) Thank goodness we can take creative license with our images and colors because I LOVE my blue leaves :)
On another subject ... I'm going to share a photo of my beautiful grandson, Cooper which was taken a couple of weeks ago. It's not the best because there are shadows from his bassinet, but I LOVE the look on his face - makes me smile. He's so happy and content ... and he brings so much joy to our family :)
