Garden Silhouettes Watercolor

Here's a share of one of my favorite stamp sets, Garden Silhouettes. I love this lacey-looking flower! I started with a piece of watercolor paper and spritzed it with water, then added pink, cool carribean, yellow, and celery colors with my aqua painter. When this piece had dried, I stamped and embossed the image with black E.P. It was layered on a Cool Carribean card, then again on a black card. Pink scallops were added on top and below the focal point. The base card, Certainly Celery,was and run through the cuttlebug with a dotted swiss embossing folder. I knotted a pink taffeta ribbon and slipped it through the hodgepodge hardware piece before wrapping it around the focal point. It was attached to the tent-folded card base and finished! So elegant, yet really a fairly easy card! I love the square card look....don't you?

That is so beautiful. I need to try that and your selection of colors are wonderful. Thanks for the explanation of how you made the background.
