On The Grow

This adorably feminine stamp set reminds us that every day is a "perfect adventure" -- or if it isn't, we can make it one! Use it to create a card for a friend who needs a light-hearted pick-me-up--or who could use subtle encouragement to try something fun and new! favorite:

I stamped the bouquet 3 times! Twice on my Watercolor Paper layer and once again by itself so that I could color it and cut it out. If you've never tried stamping on Watercolor Paper, you've got to give it a try.....perfect for line art stamps and watercoloring. If you look closely, I traced the whole outside of the image with a Blender Pen and just a hint of blue. This is a little trick to make the image pop.

  • Cardstock: Rich Razzleberry, Watercolor Paper
  • DSP: In Color Patterns Paper Pack in Pear Pizzazz
