Rubbernecker Thursday- Watercolors and Flowers

Good Morning! Thanks for stopping by today, I have another Rubbernecker card to share today, this is a simple card I made using scraps and leftovers from my work table. True story. I had stamped Les Miserables #673 on that lovely purple card stock for another project, then I changed my mind as I often do. So that left me with this awesome background piece just laying there on my table… I also had some scraps of beautiful watercolor papers made with Ken Oliver Color Burst watercolors. Those two items just left there on my table set to color theme for my card. I decided on this sentiment, Every Life #642-03, grabbed a couple of flower punches to use on my watercolor paper** note to self: watercolor paper is thick, punches are maybe not the best choice next time… ***  At first I was going to arrange my flowers artistically around the sentiment, then I remembered these “stems” from Scuffs, Scraps, and Stains #461! Added a little bow, and some pearl flower centers to complete the look! Ta-Da! All in all this card took less than 5 minutes to create, most of that time was spent fighting with a flower punch that did not want to cut through thick watercolor paper! (there would have been one more of those small daisies if I had a tad bit more patience!) 🙂

  • I LOVE your card!! The background stamp is awesome and the stems!! Who knew I’d get so excited about stems :). I made a bunch of layer cards with the colorbursts the other day. I kept wiping up the leftover wet colorburst powder with a paper towel. Finally, I thought to run a piece of watercolor paper through the remaining wet stuff. Now I have an idea of what to do with those pieces. Thanks for the inspiration!!
