Nailed It:

Happy Monday all!

You know that "once in a blue moon" moment when you feel you've nailed it?  I am talking about creating something that you've thought to yourself:  this is what was in my head!

Well it happens to me maybe twice a year, so when "it" happens, I am over the moon!  And yes, this is my "it" card =)

I masked my flowers to create a group and then painted the blooms with inks and a wet paintbrush.  I then did a quick spritz with my water bottle to give it more movement.



Ingredients:
Cardstock - Stampin' Up! Wisteria Wonder, Canson XL Watercolor paper
Dies - My Favorite Things Die-namics Blueprints 20, My Favorite Things Die-namics Blueprints 2
Stamps - Simon Says Stamp Best Mom EverMy Favorite Things LJD Pretty Poppies
Inks - Stampin' Up! Wisteria Wonder, Stampin' Up! Blushing Bride, Stampin' Up! So SaffronVersaMark Watermark
Others - Tsukineko Clear embossing powder
