SP & Co. Sunday Inpsiration!

Welcome back to my blog! Today I am showcasing another wonderful SP & Co. stamp set using watercolors....

For my card, I used my watercolor paper from Stampin' Up! and inked up the flower and vase from the "For Every Woman" stamp set with Staz On ink. I used my watercolor pen and some reinkers to "color" my image in... 

Stamps: For Every Woman & Happy Mother's Day (single) (Sp & Co.); Paper: Watercolor paper, Early Espresso, Melon Mambo, Sweet Threads DP (Basic Grey); Ink: Staz On Black, Early Espresso; Accessories: Finial Press EF, watercolor pen, (re-inkers - Regal Rose, Melon Mambo, Early Espresso, Pool Party, Old Olive), Early Espresso ribbon, scallop border punch, pearls, sponge dauber

I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Top Tip Tuesday - Mother's Day (my tip is: when watercoloring, let each layer dry a bit before you start coloring more - the paper needs to "absorb" the colors slowly)
Papertake Weekly - Mother's Day
