Today I used several different Stampin’ Up! sets, but mainly Fabulous Florets and Pleasant Poppies. The last time I used Pleasant Poppies was on this card as a focal point. It also makes a great background (in fact I think Stampin’ Up! calls it a background stamp). I’ve used Fabulous Florets on this card, this card, and this card. I explain in the video why I love this stamp set.
I used one Inktense Pencil and some water on the flowers. I used the same technique I used in this watercolor tutorial. However, on this card, I used an Aqua Painter to apply the color. In the tutorial I use a regular old paintbrush.
When is the new Stampin’ Up! catalog going to be delivered?! I seriously cannot wait. They were supposed to be mailed in mid-May, so hopefully soon. My sister gave me a little preview, but I almost didn’t look because I didn’t want to spoil the morning when I will sit with coffee and the new catalog!! I just took a quick peek but didn’t study it (yes, study it, which is what I will do!). Click here to get info on how to receive your own catalog by mail.
Anyway, enjoy the video! I’ll be back this Friday with week #4 of my Collabo with Jill Foster!
