Watercolor Trio

I saw a card on a site called Crafting the Web. The lady there used a Gina K stamp set and I am not sure of the card stock etc. I really liked the look of her card and decided to try to use my Stampin Up stamp sets to re-create the card. This picture does not do the card justice as it is much richer in person. I will be the first to say that my picture taking could use some help but you can at least get the idea of the card.

I used several greens Old Olive, Always Artichoke and Pear Pizazz for my stamped images and also for sponging. All in all I am pleased with how the card turned out .

Things I used:

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes, Watercolor Trio, Kind and Caring Thoughts

Ink: Pear Pizazz, Always Artichoke, Black


Pear Pizazz card base
cut 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2

Black scalloped oval cut from Nestabilities
Black rectangle is 3 3/4 x 2 1/2

Whisper White oval cut from Nestabilities
stamped with Pear Pizazz and Always Artichoke then sponged with Pear Pizazz.

Rectangles the one layered on the Black rectangle is 3 5/8 x 2 3/8
The rectangle stamped with the leaves from Pocket Silhouettes is 3 1/2 x 2 1/4


Sponges, Old Olive Ribbon, Stampin Dimensionals
