Happy Watercolour is one of the sets from the Occasions Catalogue that will not be carrying over to the main catalogue at the end of the month. I love this set so thought I'd make a few more cards with it.
In a simple mood lately so this is just a sheet of Night Of Navy cardstock. I've scored a rectangle using my Simply Scored board then added some piercing. I used the Essentials Piercing Pack on page 179 plus my Paper Piercing Tool.
The greeting is Perfectly Penned again (going to miss that one) and some of the splodges from Happy Watercolour. Cut out with the super versatile Apothecary Accents framelits. And some Candy Dots to finish.
I tried another panel of Happy Watercolour stamping and didn't like how it turned out.
To save it from the bin, I got out one of my square framelits and used that to punch out a few pieces.
And used those to make this that I like a bit better. Base is Rose Red and the panel is Perfect Plum. Used my Paper Piercer and Essentials pack again and the Fancy Fan embossing folder. Can you tell I'm getting every use out of my Perfectly Penned set? :-)
Tomorrow I've got some Blendabilities colouring with another favourite stamp set from the retiring list.
See you then.
