Happiness Shared

The first thing I look for every time we get a new catalog is for stamp sets I can use for water coloring, this was on my watercolor wish list.
  • Card base is Whisper White with a front of Pearch Parfait, then a layer  from the Hostess Level 1 DSP In Colors Pear Pizzazz.
  • I stamped the image in Stazon on Watercolor paper for the rose I used Peach Parfait and Pumpkin Pie markers and an Aqua Painter, leaves are Old Olive and Always Artichoke.
  • I layered the image on Peach Parfait and again on Pear Pizzazz.
  • I warped a piece of Pumpkin Pie Ribbon around the Pear Pizzazz and knotted.
  • I stamped the 4 You from Tiny Tags on Whisper White and punched out with the Jewelry Tag punch. I used croquet thread to tie it to the ribbon.
  • I used Diemensionals to layer the image onto the card.
SU watercolor paper is outstanding, I had a customer over on an Open Studio Tuesday, she was the only person in at that time, I had a watercolor card in the designed cards that they could choose to make, it had been very popular and I only had 3 left in the box for her to make she wanted to make 12. I was out of SU watercolor paper but I let her talk me into cutting up a page of my sons watercolor paper.  It just did not seem to blend as well as the paper we get from SU, even my customer comment on the difference.  It was good to learn how good SU's is :).


  1. Beautiful card! I just wish I could watercolor this pretty.

  2. This is beautiful! I would love to see how you do it so neatly. I am terrible at watercoloing. I have only tried it once but would love to try it again.

  3. Your watercoloring is amazing. Now following you thru SC, I'm #239,
