I love to watercolor and find it so relaxing.  For the past several days I’ve been playing around with watercoloring and creating lots of different backgrounds.  This particular card was so darn easy to make and I have to say that I love how it turned out!

I used our new Watercolor Pencils which at the moment are on backorder (they are estimated  to arrive in the warehouse on February 13th).   They come in Stampin’ Up! colors which I love because they match our cardstock!  To create my card, I scribbled Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Bermuda Bay onto watercolor paper.  Then, using my Aqua Painter, I blended the colors together.  They spread beautifully and the colors are so pretty!  After it thoroughly dried, I used Versamark to stamp my sentiment using the Sale-a-bration stamp set, So Very Much.  I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and watched the magic happen with my heat tool. 

This is a stamp set that can be yours with a $50 order (before shipping and tax)!  In fact, you can earn free gifts for every $50 worth of product you order.  Simply place your order online and you’ll be prompted to enter your free item numbers.  Note that for this particular stamp set, you can get it in either wood or clear mount.   Click on the Sale-a-bration catalog on the right sidebar of my blog to see what else is available!
