Watercoloured Card

Hostess-pear-cardApparently there's some large sporting event on TV today….I am planning on doing some cardmaking though! (Although…maybe I should try and do a Costco run if everyone else is watching TV??!! LOL)

I took a watercolour painting class a while back and while I really enjoyed it, I don't always have the time to pull out all the supplies. Plus I discovered that they expected me to be able to draw!! ROFLOL. Using a small piece of Stampin' Up!'s watercolour paper and a stamped image means I can quickly create a mini work of art to share – in this case, on a card. 

I love how the scripted pear image coordinates with the En Francais script background stamp.  I used the watercolour crayons with the Aquapainter to keep things relatively neat and easy. Stazon ink ensures that the image won't run when the paper gets wet.

This stamp is from Faith in Nature, a set available to purchase with hostess dollars. When you host a qualifying workshop ($200 in sales) you earn dollars that you can spend on anything in the catalogue, including some items that are only available to hostesses. If you're interested in finding out more, contact me to discuss the benefits of having a free workshop or fee-based class with your friends!
