I would not have purchased this stamp set.
However, when Stampin’ UP! blesses you with it as gift on the Stampin’ UP! incentive trip, you start thinking about how you can use it.
My first thought for this set was to watercolor the Cardinal.
Then I wanted to watercolor the berries and leaves. They are so pretty. So that’s what I did with this card. They would also be fun to color with Stampin’ Blends. I am sure I will try that at some point.
TIPS & INSTRUCTIONS
+ I like to use Archs Cold Press Watercolor paper. CLICK HERE to buy it.
+ Use Sahara Sand card stock to cut a Stitched Rectangle for the layer on top of the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper.
+ Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper is cut at 4″ x 5-1/4″, add that to the card base using snail adhesive
+ Trim off the ends of your painted holly branches and glue them in the center of the Sahara Sand card stock, add the cardinal to the top with dimensionals.
