Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop

Hello Everyone!

It is time for another Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop! I have not had the opportunity to hop in a while, but with Christmas break and free time, I was able to sneak in the final one for 2014.  If you are hopping along, I am your first stop.  You have until Friday, January 2, 2015 at midnight EST to hop along and comment for a chance to win.  A $25 Heartfelt Creations gift certificate is up for grabs!  The more blog hop participants blogs that you comment on, the greater your chances of winning.
Today I am sharing one of my favorite images, colored with watercolors~


The Dahlia Bouquet Cling Stamp Set is perfect for corner collage style designs.  I kept it simple and mailable by letting the water coloring do the talking.  A few pearls, baker's twine bow and a fine black line added around the edge of the image panel is all this card needs for embellishing. 
The image was stamped in Versafine black ink and heat set.  I water colored with my new Peerless water colors.  I added just a bit of shading with Prismacolor Pencils.  The sentiment is from the versatile Classic Message Cling Stamp Set. My card base is one of my favorite cardstocks with loads of yummy woodgrain texture, Nature Gmund Savanna cardstock.
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is Anything Goes, so I am linking up there.

  15. I love that woodgrain cardstock. I've never seen this before, but I shall be looking into getting some for myself. I like watercolor backgrounds. They simply take on a life of their own. That black line around the front panel is genius :) Thanks.
