Something Borrowed & Watercolor…

This pack of Something Borrowed DSP has been on the counter in my studio untouched and driving me nuts!  I couldn’t wait to finish a couple of big projects so I could enjoy working with it.  So far I’ve made three cards and love each one because this Sahara Sand based paper is just gorgeous.  Here is today’s card…


I do love this DSP!  Here is the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Blackberry Bliss cardstock and Something Borrowed DSP plus watercolor paper.
  • Ink:  Blackberry Bliss, Wild Wasabi, Coastal Cabana and Memento Black, Early Expresso
  • Stamps:  Basic Butterfly and Painted Petals (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Aqua Painter, Wild Wasabi and Blackberry Bliss markers plus water sprintzer


  • The 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Blackberry Bliss card is folded at 4 1/4″
  • The first DSP layer is 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
  • The second Blackberry Bliss layer is 5 3/8″ x 2 1/8″
  • The DSP layer is 5 1/4″ x 2″
  • The third Blackberry Bliss layer is 3 1/8″ x 4 5/8″
  • The water color paper is 3″ x 4 1/2″
  • The flower stamp is colored with markers and stamped on wet watercolor paper.  Dry with heat gun.
  • With Aqua Painter filled with water, paint background to dampen, but not the stamped image.  Add a drop of refill ink on acrylic block and pick up color with Aqua painter and lightly brush the background.
  • Go over the stamped image with marker to lightly outline.
  • Add splats with dampened paint brush and Early Expresso ink or use your Gorgeous Grunge for more control.
  • Make sure your watercolor paper is dry before stamping sentiment.  Ink stamp well and leave in place to soak into watercolor paper.
  • Adhere all layers to card front.

We’ve have out of town company (brother and sister-in-law) this afternoon so I’m a little late with my post today.

Hope you are having an awesome day in this blustery cold weather.  We’ve had snow off and on all day.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…
