I had the happiest mail weekend!! First I got Jody's ELF package, then I got the free set Time Well Spent that Stampin Up is sending to all demos, and THEN I got a package from my sweet friend Julee! So spoiled! Julee sent me some gorgeous satin May Arts ribbon, a clear Spica Glitter pen, and FABRIANO CARDS!! I am seriously in love, guys. They are a dream to watercolor on. It made such a difference!! I am soooo going to have to get some of these...and it's all Julee's fault!
I used the large flower from Time Well Spent, and watercolored using Blush Blossom, Groovy Guava, and Purely Pomegranate. There are some gorgeous roses outside my babysitters house that are this orangey red blend, and I really wanted that color. You can't see it, but I glittered the dots on the flower and the tiny center flower with my Spica glitter pen. Love that thing!!
To give the card a little something "extra" I stamped the dots from my Papertrey Faux Ribbon set in Groovy Guava on the bottom left and top right, and then went over them with my waterbrush to soften them. The sentiment is from the hostess set So Many Sayings, which I cut apart and mounted on EZ mount.
So there you have it folks! No embellishments, no ribbon, no nothin! You like? It's still me, I think...and even though it's simple, I love it!!
