Hello From the Heart
Remember this card set? I promised a colored version of Stampendous's Jumbo Peony image, and today I finally deliver. I stamped this beauty onto 140-pound cold press watercolor paper, heat embossed, and then watercolored with Tombow Markers. Sigh ... why don't I watercolor more? Love it so much! Such a bold, dramatic image, isn't it? I didn't want to busy it up with too much else, so I stuck to an all-white background and just added some minimal, understated embellishing ... buttons, a punched border, dry embossing, a bit of ribbon peeking out, and some clear glitter. The sentiment is from a new JustRite set called A Warm Hello -- such sweet sentiments in this one!
Hope you have a fantastic weekend planned!
