I decided to use the Bouquet of Hope stamp set and create a fun easy watercolor piece. I know this won't be everyone's  style but it's okay. Because I love it :) 


I started by doing a wet on wet watercolor using my distress oxides. I knew I was risking it using Carved Pumpkin in the mix and some of it did get a bit muddy but I actually didn't mind at all. 


Once the watercolor was dry I added shading to the stamped image with my copic markers. Combining these two mediums is one of my favorite things to do :)  I added a bit of sparkle onto the flowers too. 



I picked a sentiment from the Hello Sweet Friend set and heat embossed it using white embossing powder. I cut them into labels and popped them. Super simple. 

By request I decided to put together a video for this one. You can watch the card come together in the video below. 



Next up on the hop is my amazingly talented friend Lisa Cisneros. Happy Hopping! 

Thanks for stopping by!

  25. Bold to use the loose watercoloring on a more detailed (and human!) image like this. I think the "mud" bits that you got actually helped make the firl's skin tones look a little more realistic amidst the oranges and pinks. Someday I will have the courage to try this, and it's going to be amazing (if I keep telling myself that, it might just happen!). Thanks for sharing this lovely card and for helping introduce us to Trinity Stamps!
