My Mom was in my stamp room last night going through my retired SU samples and filling up a card box that I'd made her some time ago. We came across a Happy Harmony card that she wanted to know more about, so I pulled out Happy Harmony again. (I think it was my favorite SAB set this year.) She had never seen watercolor crayons applied directly to rubber--what fun to be able to show something so simple but so cool!
The main image here took about a minute. Figuring out what to do with it took substantially longer. . . until I remembered seeing a card sketch on Beate's blog show up on my Google reader today. Whew--Beate's done the work; all I had to do was play along!
I used a white card stock base, Elegant Eggplant, Certainly Celery, and Old Olive card stocks. I used the jumbo watercolor leaves wheel as well as the Aida cloth background. Sentiment on the front is from Just So Sayings. I know that Beate didn't have a bow on the sketch, but I needed a little something else on it--just wasn't sure what. The brads up the side are some large Memory Makers brads. I had some gorgeous aged copper brads, but I couldn't bear to part with three in one fell swoop. (Sadly, some of you understand that perfectly!) I also used a Marvy Giga Scalloped Circle punch and a paper piercing tool.
