Watercolor Trio

A sketch from Operation Write Home blog Stars & Stamps inspired me tonight...



Using the Watercolor Trio stamp set with Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, and using some stash of now Retired color Orchid Opulence I made this card pretty quickly! (could possibly be a 10 minute card :-) I dry embossed after stamping, an effect which I really liked (disguises my lack of layered stamping finesse ) and one that I think gives it a "needle point" flavor. This embossing folder is the Square Lattice. I used my very favorite punch, Modern Label, and a tiny heart from the Heart to Heart punch.
