Elements of Style

Such a pretty stamp set!  I colored a few of these images yesterday while I was at a scrapbook crop as a way to practice my watercolor skills. After stamping the image with Stazon on watercolor paper, I colored it with markers and then blended with an aqua painter.  I added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the flowers using my two way glue pen.  The background image is simple stamped color on color, in this case Certainly Celery.  Rose Red and Regal Rose are the reds used;  I am going to miss Regal Rose!

ETA:  DOH!  Regal Rose is staying...double DOH!

Still working on finishing the insides of my cards!  It certainly does add a lot!

  1. This is beautiful. What a wonderful job with the watercoloring. You're scaring me though about Regal Rose retiring. I think it's Ruby Red that's going. At least I hope so.

  2. Love this card! How come my watercoloring never turns out this well? Ahh, I want to make this card... :-)

  3. Wow, this is just beautiful.

  4. Ok I just had to come back and let you know I have 2 other son's that are 21 and almost 26 and I have not started there books So you see you really are not that behind.

  5. Gorgeous card Lauri and beautifully colored. I lost touch but am glad I found you again. Pat

  6. whoa nelly, that is gorgeous! I am stil trying to wrap my head around what is staying and what is going. for some reason I keep thinking that certainly celery is leaving, but then I remind myself, no, we get to KEEP it! :)

    can't wait for the new ones, though. so exciting!

  7. This is absolutely stunning! Love the colors.



Thank you SO much for taking a few minutes to leave me a note!
