Kind People Card from Stampin' Up! Seattle Regional

Yay! Stampin' Up! had Regional in Seattle this year!!! Woooppeeeeee! I had a blast! We made totally smokin' make-n-takes!!! And guess what????? I'm sharing them with YOU! I loved all the cards we made! FAB ideas for Mother's Day Cards! So take a peek! As I have time, I will post the next card to come back and visit! Just to clarify. I DID NOT design these cards. They were designed for Stampin' Up! Regional and I don't have any names to credit this to. It's such a treat to be a Demonstrator because you can take advantage of an exclusive event like this! We stamped and talked and swapped cards and got really cool and fresh ideas! Anyway, on with the show.

They called this the "Kind People Card" and I have to say this was my FAVE one! I am loving this stamp! On one side, you have the outline stamp, which is the one I used above. and the other side is a solid image of the same stamp. Now, I did not follow the directions that were provided so It didn't turn out exactly as it should have (I did not read the instructions provided to me and made mistakes!)....but it's still turned out beautiful! The stamp set is called Soft Summer set #113802. I think it's a great buy at $23.95. This stamp is from the Occasions Mini Catalog. CLICK HERE to download the catalog!

I LOVE watercoloring! I ended up finishing this card at home since I messed up on the directions while at the event. I'll just explain to you how I made this specific almost looks like the one used as an example at the meeting earlier anyway.
I colored the image using my watercolor pencils. I colored the flowers lightly, then came back in and used more pressure towards the middle of each flower. After coloring in everything, you just take blender pen (which is colorless) and color over everything again. Be sure to drag your blender pen on a scrap piece of paper till it's clean before you change colors!
