Sangria & Paper Garden card

I created the two following cards using the new beautiful Sangria papers and this month's Stamp of the Month stamp set called Paper Garden along with the fun new Watercolor Paints.  Get your September Stamp of the Month ~ Paper Garden HERE.  Here's a picture of the complete set.




I was inspired by fellow CTMH Consultant Diana Veenendaal on making these cards.  She is one of my uplines and shared a video on a team page of a card she made using the watercolor paints.  I loved her video and had to try it out myself once I received my watercolors.  I stamped the floral image first on Colonial White cardstock using Desert Sand Ink, then I used 3 of the watercolors trying to do an ombre effect, but once I was done, I didn't really like it.  So I tried again on another Colonial White cardstock piece, see the card below.  Funny thing is, once I had "tried again" I actually preferred the first one.  Either way, I now like them both!  Even though I was using regular CTMH cardstock instead of the new Watercolor Paper we do sell, I highly recommend you getting the Watercolor Paints & have fun playing & creating with them!
