Spring Flower Tub ...

Good morning! Today I'm sharing a card inspired by Tuesday Morning Sketch #346 that showcases the  Spring Flower Tub from Great Impressions Stamps.


This Spring Flower Tub is such a beautiful stamp, and can be used for so many different occasions! I chose to watercolor the image using my Marvy Markers. This time I added the ink to the stamp itself, huffed on the stamp to re-activate the ink, and stamped it on Strathmore Watercolor paper. Next I used my paintbrush, with water, to pull out the colors. Once it was dry, I used the markers to darken the outline of the tub and leaves, and layered it onto Kraft cardstock. I embossed cream cardstock with tiny bubbles, tied on some twine, added my colored panel, and layered all on a Kraft card.

Markers: 45 - Sepia, 15 - Olive Green, 20 - Magenta, 50 - Ultramarine

This is such a sweet card! I like the fact that you left it sentiment-less making it perfect for any occasion. You have added a ton of texture from the embossed vanilla paper to the fantastic twine bow!! Your flower tub also has a lot of visual texture.. This is a fantastic card!!
