Firsts


This card is the first project I have made with goodies from the Spring and Summer 2008 catalog.
The stamp set is called "Embrace Life", and it is gorgeous. I have so many stamp sets, yet this one called to me. I don't have any "eastern" inspired stamps in my collection, and this particular image bowled me over.
I have seen such beautiful samples made with this stamp set. A lot of them are made with one of this year's In Color, Groovy Guava. I really HATE anything to do with peach (I wonder if it has to do with my getting drunk on Fuzzy Navels in college??......still can't stand the smell of anything peachy to this day.....UGH). Back on track.......I don't like peach.....but I do like coral. So, the flowers were watercolored with my Cameo Coral ink pad and an aquapainter on watercolor paper. I went over the stems with a wash of Mellow Moss. I highlighted the flowers with a touch of my Stardust Gellyroll pen.
More new catty goodies are coming tomorrow.....yeah!!!!! I ordered some really cute stuff......can't wait to play!!!!
