CCMC215 & Nacho Average Challenge #8


I love the challenges from Nacho Average Challenges and Create with Connie & Mary this week.  I have been wanting to put some ink to this image from Full of Blessings.  You can find this beautiful set in the Holiday catalog on page 32.  One of my favorite techniques is water coloring so this was a must-have set for me.  And I love how this turned out today.  I learned how to make the 3-D flower from a video but I can't remember who did the video.  So easy!  I am sure I will make many more of them, but may not use too many of them on cards because I usually try to keep my cards fairly flat for mailing.

Stamps:  Full of Blessings
Paper:  tempting turquoise, pumpkin pie, real red dsp., water color paper
Ink:  black stazon
Extras:  markers and blender pen for coloring, chevron embossing folder, corner punch, 1 1/4" scallop circle punch

Thanks for stopping by!
