Flourishes New Release Blog Hop - Day 3

Hello, my friends!

Welcome back to Day 3 of the Flourishes New Release Blog Hop!
One lucky winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to the Flourishes LC Store.
Keep reading to find out how! :o)
Today we're featuring the new release stamp set called "A Mother's Hug"
...which you will find in the Flourishes Shop.

I thought this image would be perfect for a baby album,
so that's what I've done.
I stamped the focal image on watercolor paper.
Then I used my Distress Markers and a water brush to colour it.
It's such a lovely way to colour!

Here's a closer look at the image:

The coloured image was layered on top of this beautiful die, which is available HERE.
Then I adhered it to the journal cover, which I had covered with blue cardstock.

I added a shimmery bow, and some bits from the die-cut,
to decorate the bottom of the page.
Finally, I added some pretty pearls.

Materials Used:
Journal From My Stash;
Image: Flourishes LC - A Mother's Hug,
Distress Markers and Water Brush;
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black;
Die: Spellbinders Nestabilities - Labels 47;
Ribbon: Celebrate It;
Pearls: Stampin' Up.

Nancy, what a wonderful way to use this stamp set! I think this set is perfect for a baby project and your colouring with the distress markers gives such a soft beautiful effect.

Lovely card! Great use of distress inks.

This is BEAUTIFUL Nancy ! Such a lovely stamp and love how you've coloured it. I tried stamping on watercolour paper the other day but didn't get a good result I'll try the Memento ink. The die cut is lovely !

I just love the idea of a baby album! What Mother wouldn't love this!!

Amanda said...

Nancy, I love your fantastic baby journal idea, it's the perfect image for one :) Your coloring and the water colored background is so soothing and tranquil, who wouldn't want to look at that every time they opened their journal? I love the Spellbinders you used behind the image too, it really adds elegance to your art :)
