White isn't a *color* that I play with very often. I find its starkness hard to work with, but in this instance I wanted a simple card & I think it works. I also have a number of these notecards with scalloped envelopes in my drawer!! :) I FINALLY tried out on of the easiest techniques - water-misting. I LOVE IT! It gives you an amazing watercolor look (without ANY of the work! - sweet!). I took the flower from Petal Prints - I know it retired, but it will still be well-loved by me - fabo set! -- anyhoo.. grabbed some markers (rose red, more mustard... maybe a little chocolate chip) and colored on the stamp. Grabbed my mister of water and gave it a spray (not too close) - then stamped on watercolor paper (that of course is KEY - it would just run off of whisper white). I then took the outline stamp and did the same :) It will work well with the little package of stamped cards I made.
One more sleep 'til hubby comes home! I'm so excited -- 14 days is a LONG time :(
have a great weekend!
