Once Upon A Time There Was A Girl...

Watercolor Roses
 
...that despite the odds, she was able to do it again....
win STAMPING ROYALTY!
 
Yes, after 6 long days of keeping my secret I can finally share my amazing news!
 
Truthfully I had no expectations of being able to be in the winners circle again, but I put my heart and soul into my card submissions for the contest and luckily was able to stand out.
 
The card I am sharing today was NOT picked for Stamping Royalty but it was my favorite out of all that I submitted (which was only 8 cards.)
 
To create this card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set The Sweetest Thing, and the watercolor and masking techniques. After I inked each stamp I misted the stamp with water before stamping. The only part of the rose that wasn't misted with water is the final rose layer that was stamped in black. I was trying to re-create vintage linens, my Great Grandmother had an old table cloth that that resembled this pattern. After I finished all my stamping and after letting it dry I ran it through my PTI Linen/Canvas impression plate.  When I created this card PTI hadn't released Wet Paint yet, so the sentiment was stamped using the Winnie and Walter stamp set.
 
Thank you for visiting my blog, for believing in me, and for letting me share my happy news with you today. I hope you have a wonderful week!
