   So Saffron


   Water Painter
   Natural Finish Ribbon
   Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots

First, I stamped my image in the center of the watercolor panel.

I then colored the image, using my watercolor crayons. Always Artichoke (Grass), Baja Breeze (Sky), Early Espresso (Fence), Garden Green (Trees), River Rock & So Saffron (road and grassy field), White (Tree Tops).

Once the color was on the image, I added water, using a water painter. I also kept a paper towel in my other hand, in case the image needed a bit of a dab. 

I then stamped the sentiment directly onto the ribbon while my panel dried.

I then added the ribbon with the sentiment onto the top part of the watercolor panel. 

Next, I adhered the panel onto a DSP panel and then onto the Early Espresso card base.

I tied a bow with the Natural Finish Ribbon and attached it to the bottom of the card, using a glue dot.

Lastly, I added two brushed metallic dots and adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the card.

  1. Sally, this is a beautiful card! It's good to see you blogging again!

    1. Thank you, Jeanette. I am delighted to be back and able to get in and out of my craft room once again. November and December were quite challenging for me since my mobility was hindered. Thanks for taking the time to comment.

  2. Love this scenic stamp and your coloring. That bow is a showstopper too.

    1. Thank you, Lisa. I liked that it held the ink in place and it is wide enough to stamp directly onto it. I thought the ink would run through the threads, but lo and behold, it held. Thanks for taking the time to comment.
