Embrace Life Watercolored

i had so much fun making these cards. i used michelle's new stamp set, and then put these cards together at mom's house. i watercolored the blooms by painting the whole bloom with more mustard ink, then going back over the edges with really rust ink. the left card center is popped up, but it is not showing up in the picture. the blooms are shiny because i used the crystal effects on them. (i saw that demonstrated on a card on splitcoaststampers.)

stamps: su embrace life

ink: black, really rust, more mustard

paper: black, vanilla, really rust, more mustard


  1. It is hard for me to comment on this without getting emotional.
    I almost cried when I saw first saw it, just from knowing that this might be one of the most wonderful cards ever.

  2. These cards are so pretty. Love them.

  3. Very lovely - I really like the colors you chose!


thank you so much for your sweet comments!
