Showers and Umbrellas

Here's a creation with my recent favorite watercolouring set, And Everything Nice.
I really liked how my one card turned out earlier with the red, yellow, and blue theme, so I wanted to try something a little more subdued. I'm really pleased with the pink, purple, light blue, and saffron look. I absolutely love watercolouring this image, it just always seems to work out for me. I didn't have any ribbon that matched exactly, so I went with the old, colouring the white grosgrain with the coordinating marker trick.

  1. I'm with you the colors worked beautiful! I just got this set mounted last night. I have wanted it forever and purchased it to bump up my sales for SAB! Can't play today I have school but tomorrow, tomorrow is only a day a way :)

    I was working with this set earlier this week and am having some trouble with having it smear. Do you use Stazon ink to stamp the outline image?

  5. I do use Stazon when I watercolour, or if you really want to ensure a no run image, plus better control of the colours, emboss your image!

  7. Looks pretty. I'm not a stamper, and I can't understand your guys' lingo. But I like pretty things.

    Anyway, I have always enjoyed your creativity, so I'll come back to visit again soon, Natasha. It looks like you've got quite the following...
