Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts

I have another sneak peek from the upcoming Occasions Catalog (available January 3rd).  For this card, I used the Friend's Sweetest Thoughts stamp set.  I love the flower cart in this stamp set.  And isn't that little bird on top just the cutest?  

Watercolor Pencils

I stamped this image on this card using Basic Gray Archival ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I then colored the image  with the watercolor pencils and used a blender pen to smooth out the coloring, giving it a watercolored look.  I consider myself a beginner when it comes to the watercolor pencils (or any coloring medium really!), but the pencils are so easy and fun to use!

You can learn more about coloring with Watercolor Pencils in this video form Stampin' Up!:

My Color Combination

Berry Burst seems to be my go-to-color these days.  I paired it up with the Wood Texture DSP and Sahara Sand.  I love this combination.

In fact, this isn't my first card using this combination!  Here is another one using the Daisy Delight stamp set and embossing paste.
