Soft Blooms

I earned a couple of free sets during SU's SAB and Wonderful Watercolors was top on my list. It is such a lovely set. When I first started stamping, 2-step stamp sets were some of my fav's because they made beautiful cards without coloring. That was before I learned how to watercolor and use Copics. I still enjoy the 2-step stamps and the added bonus on this set is that you can still color the outline stamps for more versatility.
This is the card I made for MIL for Mother's Day.

The shaped card (basic gray) was done with the Spellbinders Curved Rectangle dies, I love the added interest such a simple step can give! I used SU ink to watercolor the flower (mellow moss, coral cameo, baja breeze). The DP is from the Cosmo Cricket line Ever After. I added basic gray taffeta ribbon and some pearls. The tag is another Spellbinder die and the sentiment is from the SU's retired Fancy Flexible Phrases. This one was hard for me to give away but my MIL is the best and it was a joy to make this for her!
Have a great day!
