Shaker cards. You love them or hate them. Combined with these gorgeous watercolor floral cards that I see, I realized I have a steep learning curve to get to the level of my favorite card designers. So, as an intermediary step while learning to watercolor, I experimented with 'smooshing' the color onto Tim Holtz Ranger Watercolor Paper and let the cardstock dry. I then selected a few stamps from The Ton's Simple Florals set, stamped using Versamark Clear and embossed using SSS Ultra Fine White Embossing Powder. After drying, I used the dies from The Ton for the stamp set and cut them out. I felt like a star and consequently cut one out of a piece of Stampin' Up Crisp Canteloupe cardstock. I stamped and embossed a sentiment from the awesome Friggin' Fabulous stamp set and finished the card with seed beads and some uber cool flowers and leaves.
I hope you enjoy.
