It’s been a while since I’ve used rubber stamps to make a card…
and I’ll admit that it felt really good to sit and watercolor a image again.
Interesting fact…In 1996, my creative journey was started with rubber stamps.
I choose the Color Me Spring Quilt cling stamp to use in my project.

I like using art markers ( and dye ink pads) to water color my stamped image.
I scribble using the marker onto a piece of acetate. (or anything non-porous) and pick up
the ink from the marker with the water-brush and paint the image.
When layering the card…
For simple layers I use my Xyron Tape Runner*
I also use the XYRON Adhesive Eraser* to remove any extra adhesive that might show.
Embellish the card using self adhesive flower rhinestones and a sheer ribbon bow.
