Image stamp is from a hostess set called "Feathered Hope" from the 1998-99 IB&C. Took me a while to find it in the old cattys. Was fun looking through them though...boy times/styles have sure changed! I never used this set much, but pulled it out a while ago to make my mom a bday card (she LOVES birds) - this stamp works great for watercoloring.
I finally got some watercolor paper, but its not SU! - and I think ít doesn't work as good, need to put that on my next order I guess. Definitely makes a difference for using the wwc with aquapainters though and was fun experimenting with it. I'm not 100% satisfied with the coloring I did, but I had to stick to the time limit. I am also wishing I would have cut out the image part instead of tearing around it.
Anyway.... the "future" components of the card are the watercolor vine wheel, the hodgepodge hardware swirl clip, and the faux stitching technique.
Thanks for looking!

Great design/layout. The faux stitching and wheel background really help this cute little guy stand out! Love the ribbon/swirl clip, perfect accent.
