The Floral Statements stamp set has two images, each a single word with flowers all around, that are perfect for coloring. I used the Hello sentiment on today’s card, and watercolored the whole layer using an Aqua Painter and inks. I like to put the ink on a clear acrylic block and use that as my palette. It works well and it’s so easy to clean! I cut the layers for the card using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies, a set of dies that I use more and more often. That little bit of stitching around the edges adds so much to the look of a card, and it’s quicker than cutting a plain layer with a trimmer!


Here’s what I made:
