In My Secret Garden

Hi friends! We're already at the half-way point for this week! I hope you've had a productive week so far!

Today I've done some water coloring and I wanted to share it with you. When I first saw the Secret Garden stamp set in the Spring catalog it reminded me of a technique on how to watercolor roses for a certain stamp set that we had. Well this set doesn't have any roses but I knew this technique would be perfect! I'm not going to go into the technique I will be discussing it in my newsletter this week, want to know more about the technique then subscribe to my newsletter. The technique does involve embossing.

Here's my flower that I embossed.

It's really pretty, I wish I could have captured that in the photo. Now here is what my card looks like, I decided to make a square card!

I hope you like the glimpse of my secret garden!

Supplies Used:
Stamp Set: Vintage Verses (SAB)
Card Stock: Shimmery White, Tangerine Tango, Summer Starfruit, Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper (SAB)
