The other preview catty set I ordered was Embrace life. It is such a beautiful set. I am trying to expand my stamping horizons and really needed a great watercoloring set that was elegant. This set is a bit out of my comfort zone, but I am finding it is easy to work with.
Okay, so I didn't watercolor on this card, but I used one of my favorite line art techniques-paper piecing. It is so fun and I think shows customers that they don't have to color all line art stamps. This big flower is great for stamping in black and then cutting out.
Hey, look, I sewed on this card too! Yep, got my Janome Sew mini for Christmas and Luh-huv it. I took the simple step of sewing a straight line, but I thought it helped tie together the stitched ribbon and the stitch-like lines on the designer paper. Yeah me!
