I have 2 cards to share with you today so let's get started!  


First up is a design that combined the Watercolor Wreath + Basic Banners.


Oh my goodness, I ADORE the Watercolor Wreath!  This card was so very quick to make..can you believe it?  I popped my watercolor panel in my Mini MISTI and centered the wreath.  I inked it up with Distress Oxide in Cracked Pistachio.  Before I stamped it on my watercolor panel I spritzed it with water...that's it.  This image is perfect for this technique because it gives it a layered look, don't you agree?  


I topped it off with the Banners - Basic set.  I watercolored the banner with Distress Stain in Cracked Pistachio.


Next is a card that combines the new Fresh Cut Anemones Coord Outlines with Tea Party.


My main panel is lime green.  I layered a white panel with rounded corners after doing some watercoloring in yellow.  The Tea Party tea cup has been stamped on a journal card and watercolored green.  Each individual anemone bloom has been watercolored with 2 different shades of red.  The edges of the petals have been watercolored in a very pale pink.  It isn't very noticeable in the photo but in real life, it's just the right touch.  The sentiment:

You're amazing just the
way you are.
-Bruno Mars

EVERYbody needs to hear that.  Love that sentiment!


Okay, that's it for me...next up is the Lovely LauraJane Head!  If you get lost along the way, here's the complete listing:

That wreath is fabulous! The way you've used that distress oxide ink works so well here. And yes! It does have that layered feel. The scalloped panel is sweet, and the banner is the perfect place for your sentiment. Those anemones are beautiful. I saw some very pale pink ones at the garden center today, and now I wished I bought them, lol!! Sweet in the teacup, too. Have a wonderful weekend, my friend. Bev
