|Beautiful Day by Altenew|
One of the things that struck me when I first saw this set is that the flowers also look like Wild Roses and I will use it for that as well. This is a larger stamp set than most of mine set at 5 3/4 x 8 inches. The large majority of my stamp sets are 4 x 6 inches.
There are several stamps included in this set including some floral branches and some sentiments that I will definitely use. I've only recently figured out how to create a scene using masking for a realistic look, but this set has been pretty easy so far.

I also tried out a new embossing powder from WOW! in the color Platinum Sparkle. The photo doesn't do a very good job of portraying how beautiful this embossing powder is so you will have to take my word for it.
For the floral image, I used Zig Kuretake Clean Color Real Brush Pens in Violet, Cobalt Blue and Deep Green for the leaves. I cut the watercolor panel with the largest of the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles and adhered that to a piece of "Grape" card stock from Creative Memories using Ranger Multi Medium Matte. I attached that to a standard A2 top folding card base. The Clean Color Real Brush Pens have some of the most vibrant and transparent colors you will ever see for watercolor. To finish up, I used Wink of Stella in clear on the flower and all of the leaves. In this case, I am using this card to send a note of thanks to someone who loves both, flowers and watercolor.
Thanks for stopping by today. I will be back soon with another project to share with you.
