Relaxing in the garden


I have a weakness for tree sets, I think. This is a combination of "dry" stamping and watercoloring. I stamped some on the dry paper, spritzed it with water, markered on a little, then spritzed again with water and stamped from the ink pad onto the damp paper.

The little flowers are just dotted on with markers and then watercolored over top. I like where my little sentiment flag is, but really, it's serving to cover up a 'blurp' of color at the top of my little boots. Also, the tension was off on my sewing machine, but since this card is a little raggedy in nature, I just let it go and finished my path around.

The words used on this stamp came FREE with my qualifying purchase during Sale-a-bration. You can get free goodies, too, through Stampin' Up's promotion. Want to order through me? You can order online through my demonstrator website(http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/melissakulesa/), or if you have questions, please drop me a line. Hurry though, you only have through the end of March.
