I wanted to try my hand at watercoloring (i use watercolor pencils) so i stamped this cute image on this nestability die cut, and embossed the edge too, using watercolor paper. I then took scrap paper and rubbed the color pencil colors i was going to use in the image onto the scrap paper so that i could wet my paint brush and then go in and wet the color i was going to use and then color on the image. It worked really well. I decided to make the back ground a bit grey , some blue, making it look like a cloudy rainy day. I added the image to matching papers, and machine stitched the blocks of color and the image to the background. I added a few dew drops and i made these paper roses out of the background paper to bring it all together. Adding a rub on sentiment. I LOVE this card! to cute, its got shiney paper, sparkle and charm!
