More Night and Day Flower

I made a set of cards from the stamp I am currently obsessed with - Hero Arts Night and Day Flower, and I am still only playing with the outline image, it also has a solid image. The sentiment is another Hero Arts stamp from Everyday Sayings...this one too experienced a little cut to make it fit.

  Distress Markers and Ink pads in Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Wild Honey, and Dried Marigold
 Distress Markers and Ink pads in  Milled Lavendar, Shaded Lilac, Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade
Distress Markers and Ink pads in Worn Lipstic, Tattered Rose, Broken China and Tumbled Glass
Distress Markers and Ink pads in Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmon and Peacock Feathers

I was at AC Moore and they have 30 sheet tablets of Canson Watercolor  9X12 cold press 140lb paper on sale for $5.88. I grabbed two considering my obsession with the watercoloring right now. I cut it into 4.5 by 6 inch sheets and intended to use it for practice, but it worked really well with the markers for blending colors.  Woot! It took the versamark well for heat embossing on the smooth side.  The color is very close to the distress watercolor paper as well.

I'll be wrapping this set up with some stamps and a pen for a birthday gift.  Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Gorgeous set of cards, Cat! I love how you're playing with this stamp set and your water colors so much! Your color combos are so pretty, and I love how you framed each one with the coordinating color, too!
    Thanks for the 'heads up' on the water color paper :-)

  2. Really shows how versatile this stamp set is (and technique) - each card looks quite a bit different than the others! Also like the card base borders - nicely accents the flowers.
