Mint Macaron Water Colour Rhododendron & A special Day Tomorrow!

Monday, June 1, 2015

I'm giving you a break from all my "By the Tide" cards today. I'm showing you a long card, which you know I like, using the retiring "Back to Black" DSP and "Lot's of Thanks" stamp set, with the new colour, Mint Macaron. And a water colour image from the new catalogue's hostess sets, "Best Thoughts" with the Rhododendron.

I just love that Mint Macaron! It goes beautifully with many colours. This is the first time in years that I did water colouring. I kind of got used to Blendabilities (& other alcohol markers before becoming  demonstrator). I of course used Mint Macaron for the blossoms, and then Always Artichoke for the leaves.

I curled the blossoms downward toward the back a little, and the leaves upward. You can see that better in this next photos.

And I did the usual on the inside. I think I should come up with a different inside. I somehow, keep making them the same.

I think I will try this beautiful stamp with the new Watermelon Wonder next time.

Remember, there is only today and tomorrow left to get either the Back to Black DSP or the Lot's of Thanks stamp set before they are gone. And to get the beautiful Rhododendron, starting June 2nd if  you place an order over $200 you will be able to get this lovely stamp set.

So good of you to stop by today to have a look.

Happy stamping!
