Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop! This week we are featuring stamps that are RETIRING.
I actually had to sit and think for awhile before deciding on a stamp set to use. Sometimes having so many options can be daunting! In the end I chose a set that has a fantastic bold greeting, HELLO LIFE.
I embossed the sentiment in white to pop against the Basic Black cardstock. This boldness is quite a contrast from the soft watercolor background that I made.
The soft background was simple to make. A piece of watercolor paper and a bit of ink was all it took. I used the new In Colors Dapper Denim and Flirty Flamingo with Rich Razzleberry. The Aqua Painter made it super easy, it has become one of my best loved tools!
I also added a bit of stamping inside the card. I love the smaller sentiments just as much as the bold one! I used each of the three colors from the watercolor on the front to tie it all together.
Now, let’s get to the good stuff, the supply list!
