Happiness Watercolor

My friends over at Hand Stamped Sentiments have a Watercolor challenge this week.   That gave me the motivation to mount my Happiness Shared set and create this card using my Watercolor Crayons. 



Card base is Old Olive with a very narrow layer of So Saffron and a background of Regal Rose that was textured with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.  I stamped on a Naturals Ivory Top Note with Black Stazon, in the center first with the rose image.  I masked that and added two more roses, one on each side.  I colored all the roses with my crayons in Regal Rose, So Saffron & Old Olive using a blender pen.  I did one extra rose on a small scrap of Naturals Ivory, coloring just the rose and cut that out.  I layered that over the central rose, cutting the petal lines and curling the edges just a bit before attaching with a dimensional.  I punched on each side of the top note with my Crop-a-Dile making a slot for the ribbon to go through.  I tied the Satin Very Vanilla ribbon in a knot at the side.  The saying was stamped below the roses also with Black Stazon.

Thanks for stopping by!!  Hope to see you here again soon!
