Greetings, Stampers! My sneak peek week continues and I have a few more new products to share with you. I received a second Stampin' Up shipment last night. Yes, I made two orders in less than a week. I'm all out of control with this new catalog! In it was a gorgeous hostess set called Simply Sketched and I immediately inked it up. I have to say that I think this is my favorite set out of the entire catalog and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. It features three beautiful images and three very usable greetings.
This card definitely has a clean and simple layout, and I thought it would be perfect to link up with the CASology cue card this week: CARE. If you're a follower of my blog, you know that I lost my Mom recently. I can't tell you how much it meant to me to receive a card in my mailbox, especially a handmade one, and to know that someone cared. So, with that on my mind I came up with this CAS sympathy card.
I just loved this little bird perched in the grasses, and he was screaming to be watercolored. I stamped the image on Watercolor Paper with Black Stazon Ink. I colored it in with an Aqua Painter and two new ink colors, Baked Brown Sugar and Pear Pizzazz. I used a little Sahara Sand ink to create a shadow. The simply patterned DSP is from the Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper pack.
