Papertrey February Blog Hop Challenge

Hello there! I don’t have anything too exciting to share today – just a simple card set for the February blog hop challenge at Papertrey Ink and the Make-it Monday #153.

I created a set of 6 pastel based cards, with a watercolor wash (Colorbox® Premium Dye Inks) and embossed flower from Year of Flowers mini – am ashamed to say this is the very first time that this set has seen ink!

After embossing, I stamped the flower image again slightly off-center in the same color as the watercolor to give a bit of a shadow. Anything to keep these from being too plain 🙂

The weather has been so cold and blah here, with no sunshine for the last few days and it has really zapped my energy and creativity. I had hoped doing a little spring-themed crafting would kick start something but am still walking around with this hazy headed feeling.

Alas, tomorrow is another day – hopefully a sunny one 🙂

  1. Very pretty set of cards! Im in love with the shapes of your colorwash backgrounds. Mine always come out looking wonky, lol! Thanks for the tip about stamping again off-center for a shadow effect. I will keep that in mind for the next time. Hope you get lots of sunshine soon!

  2. Nothing exciting are you kidding me! These are absolutely stunning! Love the simplicity of these stamped watercolor notecards they look so pretty altogether. Beautiful work!
