Stampin' Up! Happy Watercolor

Here's a peek at this week's Watercolor Wonder class.  We played with selected watercoloring techniques, but I wanted to start with faux watercoloring using the watercolor wash stamp in the Happy Watercolor set.

There are some beautiful flowers in this set, perfect for coloring, but I wanted to focus on the warm-colored wash paired with gold.  This card is a combination of influences from other wonderful demos, Lee Conrey, Kimberly Van Diepen, and Jeanna Bohanon.

Stamps: Happy Watercolor; Paper: Baked Brown Sugar, Very Vanilla, Watercolor Wonder DSP, Gold Foil sheet; Ink: Crisp Cantaloupe, Summer Starfruit, Pistachio Pudding, Baked Brown Sugar, Gold Encore; Accessories: Gold baker's twine, Gold sequin trim, Vintage trinkets, Banner punch, Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch.

Oh, so pretty! I think the soft pastels look beautiful with the gold.
