Thank you Susan


Hi everyone.  Here's a watercoloured card I sent to my good friend, Susan.   She has already received the card, so I'm sharing with you. :)

This card uses the Stampin' Up! inks again.  Love the variety of shades of pink for coloring the roses.  Had lots of fun moving the ink around the background with my fingers. :) 







Stamps: Roses (Rubber-Art Stamps); Lots of Thanks (Simon Says)
Paper:  White card base (Neenah); Watercolor (Arches 140 lb. cold press)
Ink:  Archival Black - waterproof (Ranger); Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Regal Rose, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  waterbrush, water mister, heat tool, paint brush for splattering
