I can’t believe this set wasn’t on my wishlist when I first received my catalogue!!
This is just one of the stamps in the set of 6 (on page 81 of the new catalogue) as well as the greeting which is also in the set.
If you haven’t already, you can order or pick up your catalogue from me ($15 including shipping direct to your door, or $10 local pick up).
This stamp is perfect for water-colouring, so I got out my Aqua-Painters (did you know that these have come down to 19.95 in the new catalogue?) which are still my preferred Water Colouring tool…….for those authentic looking brush strokes, nothing beats it!
You may have noticed I’ve chosen some coloured card-stock for my canvas. I liked the idea of starting with a wash of colour in the back ground so I stamped directly onto So Saffron cardstock in Stazon (waterproof ink) before watercolouring the image using the well of ink in the lid of my Tangerine Tango, Riding Red and Kiwi Kiss inkpads. Leaving the ink to dry (you can speed up the process with your Heat Tool) I then added white hilights on the flowers to make them “pop”.
Ingredients used to make this card:
Stamps : Friends 24-7 set
Ink : Black Stazon ink, Tangerine Tango, Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss Classic Ink Pads
Cardstock : Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Kraft, So Saffron cardstock.
Accessories : Stampin’ Dimensionals, Aqua painter, Heat Tool, Scallop Edge Punch and Kiwi Kiss Striped Grosgrain ribbon.
I was pleased with the result……..what do you think?

Your card looks great, I have been playing with this set myself and I found it lots of fun.
I had this stamp set on my wish list and now you’ve given me more reason to leave it there. I really like it, and love the card you’ve made.
Can you please teach us to water colour? I’d love to try it but am not sure how. I like the look of the watercolour pencils but am not sure how they work either.
Love your blog with your great ideas!
