{ playing with new stamps }

Here's a card I made yesterday for Andrea H. (the giver of my blog candy below, don't forget to enter before tonight!).

Card Recipe:

Stamps: flower from Hero Arts, flourishes from Rhonna Farrer (UM clear stamps).

Cuttlebug swirls embossing folder.

The flower was watercolored with my aqua painter and SU watercolor wonder crayons. Then I applied a layer of crystal effects.

The faux diamonds are from A Muse and the fabric covered brad is from Making Memories.

The colors are So Saffron and Orchid Opulence.

I used a Tim Holtz distress tool to muck up the edges a bit and of course did DTP on the edges as well. What's a card without DTP?!

Be sure to read the next few posts below.... there's blog candy, free stamping gift, card class in a box... lots of good stuff! I'll be back online later tonight to announce the winner of the blog candy!

If you're still in need of a personalized custom watermark I can create one for you!
