Watercolor Trio From the Heart

Inspiration for this card came from a layout I found in a recent Stampin' Up! demonstrator magazine.  I chose the Watercolor Trio flowers stamp set which is available in the Summer Mini Catalog until 8/31/10.  This stamp set is available in clear or wood mount.

The stems were inked with an Always Artichoke inkpad.  Before stamping, a blender pen was used to wipe the color off the flowers, which were then colored with a Ruby Red marker.  The marker was also used to ink the edge of  the  small sentiment layer.
The inside of the card is stamped along the bottom edge with the same stems.  I really like this combination of Ruby Red and Always Artichoke.   The Ruby Red will be retiring, but I think this card would also look great with Cherry Cobbler, one of the new colors that will be in the new Idea Book and Catalog,  available July 1st.
Thanks for visiting today. Have a wonderful weekend!
