The stamp set looks like this:
I chose to create a 5x7 card using a new technique for me - watercolours. This was surprisingly easy to do. I wanted to be able to use one of the patterned papers from the Brushed Paper Pack, so I chose three colours that co-ordinate with that paper - Canary, Pixie and Juniper. I used a large acrylic block and covered it with our dye inks, varying the locations of the colours. I then spritzed the block with water and turned it over to stamp it on the paper. This is the result. The stamp set was used to create the section inside the rectangle, using a lot of masking to overlap the stamps. For the sentiment, I used Canary ink in the middle and graduated to Pixie on the outside, although it looks like some orange ink was used, it is just the mixture of the yellow and pink. My camera seems to be a little "off" with my colours lately - have to see if I can remedy that... the pinks are not as pink as they should be!
