For my first sample, I used the wonderful set, Something Marvelous . I tried a different technique for my background. I rubbed tempting turquoise and garden green ink on a sheet of acetate, then I spritzed it with water and put my watercolor paper on it, using my brayer to make sure it all made contact. After taking the acetate off I spritzed it again and brayered again, just to blend the colors a bit more. I like the texture of the watercolor paper with this technique... it's a different look but I like it! I stamped my image twice across the lower part of the page. I used another piece of the background paper to stamp the sentiment on, and then cut it out along with a frame using Spellbinders Opulent Ovals. I just matted with the same shades and added some pearls and ribbon for a simple card.
For my second card, I used Heaven's Masterpiece. I stamped on white and cut out with Our Daily Bread designs Elegant Ovals. I ran a black marker around the edge to create a bit of a border but still kept the image clean. I matted with a Spellbinders Lattice Motif Die Cut. My base is black, and the designer paper is from a Making Memories Black Tie pad. I stamped the sentiment on a tag die from the Our Daily Bread designs Custom Recipe Card and Tags Die Set. LOVE that set!!! A few pearls, a May Arts ribbon, and a little Prima rose finish it off.
Here are the sets I used:
