March SOTM Blog Hop – Winged Masterpiece

Welcome, welcome, welcome!  This month’s Stamp of the month is such a pretty one!  One that you can do so many things with!  Color?  Yup!  Not color? Yup!  With sentiments that cover a whole gambit of occasions!  Today you could have arrived from Katy’s blog, or you could have started here.  Either way, you should end up back where you started!

I honestly didn’t have any idea where to start, originally, with this set.  I didn’t want to cut it out (it has no thin cuts), but didn’t want to leave it blank, either.  I wanted to color it, but have been using my markers a lot recently, so decided to go with watercoloring, but decided to use the inks instead of the watercolor pencils that we carry.

 

I wanted to go with the colors of the In This Together paper packet.  The purple stripes is actually a zip strip from one of those papers.  I really love how this card turned out!  The little brush strokes outside of the frame, the coloring (even though it isn’t perfect), the colors, and the whole thing!  I hope you like it as well!

 

I triple layered the frame, to give it some substance on the card front, and I think that helps it pop all that much more!

Thanks again for stopping by!  Hopefully you will leave a little note below before you hop over to Krista’s blog!  Enjoy the rest of the blog hop!

    Fabulous card! I looks like it should be hanging in a museum. I love your watercoloring and the colors you selected!
