Soft and sweet

Today the Flourishes Senior Team is going to do something a little different! We're going to spend this Friday on a Technique Focus we think you'll enjoy. It's one that's very "hot" in the cardmaking industry right now, watercolor. You'll see many examples of some great watercoloring techniques along the way with the Design Team. We're also going to focus on a product we have in store that's great for watercoloring, AND it's in our OVERSTOCK Sale too! It's our Letraset Aqua Markers, which are perfect for watercoloring, and on sale - who can beat that!

 As well we wanted to remind you that today is our last day to purchase the August New Release Bundle at a discount. You don't want to miss the savings!
Now for my creaiton. Soft and delicate feeling don't you think? Not my normal I know, however I love how this turned out. My image is a favorite of mine called Sweet Peas that is stamped onto watercolor paper using Memento Tuxedo black ink.
I colored my Sweet Peas with Aqua Markers Wisteria, Aquamarine and Spring Green. The soft coloring really does draw me in. Now does that mean I am switching over to the softer side? Nah... just means that every now and then soft is good. ;-)  My sentiment tag is tied off with a button and jute twine combo. The fancy edge at the bottom of  my Classic White card stock is a new die to me called A2 Bracket Borders One and I do LOVE this new Spellbinders die. Be on the look out as I will have more to come with this die set. My colored card stock is from our Color Made Easy Emerald Coast and Crocus Collections. A few pearls to the bottom and Voila!
