Happy Watercolor…


I’m just loving this designer series paper called Watercolor Wonder.  The worst thing about it is both sides of every sheet is so pretty I’m having a difficult time deciding which side to use.  It’s a given there will be another order of this paper!

Today I’ve made a sympathy card, but you could just as easily use this card for birthday, get well or just thinking of you.  The stamp set that coordinates with this paper is amazing!  I can look like a sophisticated artist with just a stamp…This card was inspired by a layout by Fran Sabad at

sympathyHere is a list of the Stuff and Digits for this card:

  • Paper:  Gumball Green cardstock, Bashful Blue cardstock and Watercolor Wonder DSP
  • Stamps:  Happy Watercolor and Simply Sketched
  • Ink:  Gumball Green, Bashful Blue, Staz On Black and Perfect Plum
