I Feel Pretty, Oh So Pretty

I've had this card in my head for quite a while.  Love the pop of the blues against the kraft so much!  And I've missed working up flowers.  Very simple--stamped the background stamp using a pale ink then used watercolor pencils to color the flower.  Watercolor pencils without water.  The barely there background speaks to me.

The Details:  Derwent watercolor pencils, PTI Choose Joy sentiment, 140lb cardstock base and 80lb kraft cardstock, VersaFine Vintage Sepia, Hero Arts soft vanilla and large flower background, Simon Says Stitched Rectangle die

I'm entering this in Mod Squad Make Your Own Patterned Paper, CASology #173 Pretty, Addicted to Stamps and More #171 Anything Goes

  9. I love that pop of blue against the kraft background too, really beautiful. And the first thing I think of with that background is finely tooled leather, I just think that's what it looks like. Thank you so much for participating this week at the Mod Squad Challenge
