Maggie Floral Vase

Remember that new stamp Market Street Stamps set that I first showed you here? Well, I just can't quit using it! The flowers are supposed to look kind of like those blue-ish, purple-ish hydrangeas that you see, so I used watercolor crayons to color on the stamp before misting with water. It's interesting that the acrylic stamps don't react the same way as rubber with this technique. It took about six attempts until I was happy with the results.

The other coloring you see is with Copics, and the paper is from TAC's Maggie collection
I wanted to show you the inside of the card because the sentiment is such a good one and it's pretty too! Me likes the way the font ties the outside and inside together. :-)
