As promised, Summer Blooms continues...today, I had fun with some watercoloring - I just need to remember to use water color paper next time, although it worked out fine on just cardstock. I did a Catalog Case. I was looking up this particular stamp set to see if there were framelits to go with it and saw a cute idea in the Catalog for using the stamp. Unfortunately I was doomed to fussy cutting the image out...I think for all (or most) of the stamps, there should be framelits to coordinate. Well, I will dream...
In the marker packs, I used Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz and Daffodil Delight to color in the rose. Now that I look at the flower more, it may not be a rose, maybe a gardenia? If you know the correct name for the flower, please let me know so I can learn my flowers :)
On the inside, I used the single "rose" flower and embossed and water colored it too to match the front of the card. My sentiment is the "Make A Wish" from Happy Birthday Gorgeous.
All in all, it was a fun card to make - thanks Stampin' Up! for the inspiration. I have read many a post that do "Case the Catalog" days, and I finally did it. Yay!
