This is for SC3285. I've been neglecting some of my all time favorite stamp sets and decided to pull one this evening for this challenge. And Everything Nice is a SU set that I will never let go. I think the little girls are beautiful and lend themselves so beautifully to watercoloring. I also love to create little outdoor scenes around them.
I stamped the image, painted and cut out. I created a little background scene on a separate piece of watercolor using an artist pen to sketch the tree, sponges and my Kittie Kits mini fern stamp. When I was finished with the scene I sponged over it with a light shade of yellow and I love the storybook feel it gives to the scene. And I just cannot stop using my punches to embellish my cards with foliage and flowers. I guess I will get over it sometime!!

As I commented on a different card, keep 'em coming! Keep those punches working! I haven't had much spring where I am but I loving the glimpses you keep providing with your fabulous floral arrangements. So wonderful. I love this! Next time I have those MS hydrangea punches in my hand, I won't be strong and resist buying them. They will come home with me! :)
