What I love Wednesday: Watercolor

Hello! Happy Wednesday to you. 

Welcome to my Wednesday blog feature where I get to use something I love, do something I love or share something elegant with you. 

I've been happy as a clam getting to do what I love - watercoloring! Today I'm happy to share the Bouquet: Ranunculus stamp set 
from W PLUS 9. I love butterflies and gold too. 

The wonderful thing about this stamp set is that the flowers have already been arranged for you. They're not too large so they can be stamped more than once on your card front, allowing for different arrangements.

I embossed them in white and colored them with Distress Inks on Ranger Distress Watercolor Paper. I added some shading and a bit of ink spatters to complete the design. I've had this set for way too long and what I love about the blog itinerary is that I set aside time to color it for today's post. And watercoloring to me, is the most restful thing to do! This was my third take on it--Just so you know. 

My only embellishment was a butterfly embossed onto vellum, and the sentiment die cut out of Gold Foil card stock.

In case you didn't notice - NO SEQUINS!  Although I did pull them out and decided to let the florals shine. Alone.  

The Hand-Lettered Hello set has smaller sentiments that I can add on a thin banner under the Hello when I decide who will be receiving this card. 

Thanks as aways, for stopping by. Your kind comments make my day! 

Be yourself
     Delight in your craft
