One more card.


I finished my card for the Daring Cardmakers challenge. The theme this week is "I'm sorry". When I read the theme, I started planning the layout of my card etc. You know what I found out...it is difficult to find a stamp that says "I'm Sorry"! I had to write the words "I'm sorry"....and I'm Sorry about having to do that. The c/s is Bazzill, watercolor paper Strathmore. I have been practicing on my water coloring skills and I have to admit that they are improving abit. my water color pencils are General Kimberely's. I brought this kit 2yrs. ago at Michael's. The stamp is by Hero Arts and I used blk. StazOn Ink. The Organdy ribbon unknown. This was my first time working with this type of ribbon, I didn't think that my clear strip of adhesive would "show" but it does. I'm not 100% pleased with this card, yet I learned a few things from making it. This is why I like challenges...you learn alot along the way.

Now you see I hadn't noticed about the adhesive until you mentioned it! I think it looks lovely anyway!

Wow! Beautiful card!

Your colouring looks just like it does on the decal of the stamp, fab!!

Your coloring is gorgeous on this one! I admit, I don't use my watercolor pencils at all. I prefer my watercolor crayons but I'm thinking I might need to give my pencils another try :-)

The watercoloring is gorgeous!
If you feel like the ribbon needs to be tacked down, just tape it around that layer and then attach to your card base, HTH.
There really is no adhesive that won't "show" through organdy.

I agree that the watercolouring is super - beautifully done and lovely colours.

Beautiful! Looks just like the label on the front of the stamp. Don't you just love this floral stamp?
