Because I care

Stamp sets: Because I care, and the Stampin around music wheel
Card stock: Very Vanilla
Ink: Crumb Cake, Certainly Celery ink refill
Ribbon: Crochet Trim, twin
Asscesories: Blossom punch, Antique brads

I love this card, it has such an antique feel about it. To make the Flowers I used coffee filters and punch out the flowers. I then took the flowers and dyed them in a little bowl with a bit of water ( like 1 tablespoon ) and several drops of the ink, certainly celery, basicly you keep adding color until you are happy.  One bit of advise, don't add too much water or you will need a lot of ink refill.  I also sponged the edges to give it more of an antique feel.

Watercolor Magic

I love the end result of this technique, it's a simple way to release some creativity! 

Stamp sets: Pursuit of happiness, Inspired by nature

Cardstock: Very vanilla, watercolor paper

you take and color right on the stamp with the watercolor crayons, colors of your choosing, for this card I used, old olive, tangerine tango, daffodil delight, pumpkin pie.  After you have colored the whole stamp, take a water bottle and spritz the stamp, until the colors start to blend, then stamp on your watercolor paper.
