Occasions Mini 2012 Bordering on Romance

Whew… finally had a little time to stamp using new stamps from the Occasions Mini 2012 Catalog which premieres on January 4th.    The catalog is full of all sorts of fun new stuff, you’re sure to love!

Today’s card features a watercolor with re-inker and aqua painter technique along with the Friendly Phrases Stamp Set, and New Bordering On Romance Occasions Mini Stamp Set.  The floral images are perfect for water coloring, I had a lot of fun making it!1.2012OccasionsMini_BorderingOnRomance_Createdbyu_BLogspot

A very Clean and Simple (CAS) card, the images were inked with Stazon Permanent Ink onto a 3” x 5” piece of Water Color Paper.  Stamping with Stazon allowed me to begin water coloring immediately without heat-setting.2.seam_Binding-bow

An Always Artichoke band of seam binding (ribbon) and bow were added to the upper right corner…3.basic_Jewel_Pearls_Corner_View

And Basic Jewel Pearls balance it in the lower right corner of the water colored focal image and sentiment.

The focal image was layered onto a 5-1/8” x 3” piece of Always Artichoke card stock and popped with dimensionals onto the pretty polka dot designer series paper (DSP) pattern from the Subtles DSP Pack.4.Focal_Image_bordering_on_Romance_Sneak_2012_createdbyu_blogspot
