A Tip from Barb

I purposely kept the coloring simple on this card due to all the other steps that you’ll need to take to create this card. If you prefer a more robust, blended look on your flowers, you can either pull the color from the Watercolor Pencils using a Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (it won’t run your ink) or replace the Watercolor Pencils with Stampin’ Blends. The choice is yours!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you are inspired to create today, whether it is this beautiful handmade card or another cardmaking project.  My goal is to help you carve out some creative joy!  If you’d like more detailed directions on how to make this card, feel free to email me.
