WWYS #53: Watercolor Words

Hi! It's Monday all over again and that means another round of What Will You Stamp?! This week we are featuring Watercolor Words! I will admit that when I first saw this set I wasn't in love... but, once I got to play around with it a little bit I had a huge change of heart! 

I did something a little bit different this week. I decided to create one "sketch" and stick with that same sketch to make a couple of different cards. I've recently decided to join the #imbringingbackbirthdays movement and so I've been finding that I need to make even more cards than normal... but I still want them to fun! Here's what I came up with...


My first card was made using Crumb Cake and Pink Pirouette cardstock. My inks are Black Archival and Smoky Slate. I used an aqua painter to give the heart just a bit of Pink Pirouette to match the embossed background. A few beautiful pearls topped this one off to give it an elegant look!

Here's a close up that makes it easier to see the watercolor writing of this stamp set. You can also see that I've watercolored the heart... What you can't see is that it's also nicely doused in Wink of Stella so that it shimmers.

My second card uses bolder choices as I went for Basic Black and Melon Mambo. I used exactly the same process as with the first card except for that I used a different embellishment. The candy dots went well with this card and I love the bright happy look!

I forgot to mention earlier that I popped my white Happy Birthday layer up on dimensionals.


For my third and final trick... ok, just kidding, my third and final card uses Basic Gray and Pool Party. This is a combo that I absolutely love. You'd never know it from this post but I'm really not very into the color pink-surprise! The "just for you" and star are stamped in Smoky Slate and my embellishment this time around is from the pack of White Perfect Accents. 

I'm really loving this watercolor look and it's so easy to get with this stamp set!


Take a gander at the whole Watercolor Words stamp set...It really is fantastic!

If you have this stamp set I sure hope that you will join us over at What Will You Stamp this week!

Thanks for stopping by blog!
