A Little Watercoloring...

Glad to have you back friends...
Coming up with different ideas and not making each card look the same is sometimes a little tricky? Now...this card in my opinion looks a bit flat...I mean there is no silk flowers added to this one. I believe raised or dimensional flowers really add a nice touch.  However, it's not realistic in mailing them that way.  So I did that on purpose for this card.  Reason it can be mailed through the postal service easily.  

With this card I used the Spellbinders Nestabilities Fleur De Lis die cut  for each corner.  I then used my stamp from "Me and Carry Lou Stamps" - Pansy Corner H-123.  I took the stamp and hand colored each flower and leaf individually with my Tom Bo Water Color Pens before stamping onto water color paper.  I then water colored the flowers with my pens to lightly add a bit of color to each flower and cut them out and attached them to each side.  I used my small fern leaf punch from "Punch Bunch" to add more leaves.  The bible verse is computer generated.  I added the silver rhinestone flourishes to ad BLING, BLING to both corners. Then lastly, I put lavender photo corner tags in two corners of the card.  This card has a little bit of everything. 

Blessings to all...Leanne


  1. This is very pretty. I like the bling. Thanks for joining us again at Stampin Sisters in Christ.

    Hint - next time you link a card make sure that you link just the post that has the challenge card rather than you blog. Thank you.

  3. I understand what you are saying about the card seeming to be too flat, but it is a beautiful, very well done card, non-the-less.

  4. Gorgeous card. I struggle with cards that are hard to mail too!! A lady at my church commented on how much I had to pay for postage to mail her card. It was so thick I had to put it in a box! :) I love the way the flowers were watercolored and those punched leaves add so much. Thanks for sharing your beautiful creation at Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge!

  5. This is gorgeous! I love the dreamy feel of the watercolored corner flowers and the bling is a beautiful touch! Thanks for joining us at Stampin Sisters in Christ!
