Love Our Watercolor Daffodils!

We’ve been wanting these two stamp sets for some time now so it’s only right that we roll them out to make this Watercolor Daffodils card.

Because of the collection of stamps in these two sets, you can easily switch this from a Thinking of You card idea to a Happy Easter card idea.  I love that!

Ann’s fond of daffodils because they grow them near her hometown.  They have a Daffodil Parade and everything.  I wonder if they still have the Daffodil Queen and Princesses.  (They said that was a scholarship program.)

So last night, Ann got out these colors of Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers a proceeded to color (the link to the entire set is at the bottom of this post):

And of course, here’s the card.

We know better, but we still colored our shading in at the end.

DON’T DO THAT!

It’s always better to color your shading in FIRST and THEN color your flowers.

Why?  It just works better that way.

  • If you mess up your shading, you do it before you’ve invested a lot of time coloring.
  • Your shading is less likely to bleed when the project is still dry.

Do you notice the bonus?

Do you notice the bonus on this card?  This time, it’s not a free stamp set.  It’s a free set of shimmery ribbon!   While supplies last, you can get a 3 roll set with a $50 purchase.
