I got my order of new catalog items and had a little time to play with it today. One of the stamp sets at the top of my wish list was the Regarding Dahlias set. Not only do I love the floral image (I’m such a sucker for floral images), but I love the sentiments as well. They will be well used I’m sure.
I stamped the dahlia on watercolor paper with Calypso Coral ink, and then took my watercolor brush and Crisp Cantaloupe ink and colored in the petals. I then just used some water in my brush to dilute the colors a bit and blur the image slightly. I then applied Dazzling Diamonds on top. I used another stamp set, Gorgeous Grunge, to make the splatters.
Enjoy your Saturday! I am one project away from being finished with my convention display samples (23 down, and just one to go). Then I need to take pictures of them all so I can share them with you after convention next month. Whew! It will be such a relief to box them all up and ship them to Utah.
Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful! I love the sentiments in that set also. I don’t have it yet, but I’m sure I’ll be getting it eventually! Glad you’re nearly done with those projects. Woo hoo!
This set was near the top of my list, too and I love your card. Can’t wait to see your convention projects next month!
