I was inspired by this challenge to get out our Versatile Vases stamp set and create a floral card. I haven't used this set in awhile and I really love the little jars and vases in it! I stamped the image of the Jar and flowers onto watercolor paper with waterproof ink. Then I added some color with Inktense watercolor pencils. The "hello" sentiment is also from our Versatile Vases stamp set!
I tried to keep it simple - I like the airiness of the inspiration photo so I left a used a lot of white on the card. I embossed a piece of white with a flower embossing folder to add a bit of texture. For a bit of color on the base, I used a piece of patterend paper from my stash that had just a tiny bit of sublte blue pattern on it. I love how this turned out!
Make sure you pop over to the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge blog to see more fun today. We have several other NND Design Team members featured as "Guest Sweeties" for this challenge and a bunch of the regular "Sweeties" (that's what they call their Design Team -- cute, right?) are featuring Newton's Nook Designs stamps too!
