Stampin' Up! - Flowering Fields (SAB favourite product)

Hello, I think my favourite product from Sale-A-Bration has been the Flowering Fields stamp set.

I have had so many lovely comments about these two cards from my Coffee & Cards ladies over the last few weeks that I thought I would share them with you before they disappear.  They are basically the same design but one of them had an additional step in the creative process.

I will be posting a tutorial soon to explain how I created the watercolour backgrounds using a technique that I learnt at school many, many years ago.   It is such a great, quick and simple technique that looks different every time and looks like you are a great artist (I think anyway)!

After creating my background I stamped the images from this gorgeous set in Versamark Ink and heat embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder.

I coloured the images with my Stampin' Write Markers.

For the second card I took things a step further and spritzed the watercolour panel with water to make the colours bleed.

After taking this photo I did wonder whether or not I needed to add more colour - so I did!

What do you think?  Did it need the extra colour?  Don't forget that this gorgeous stamp set is only available for the next 2 days.  I have already had a customer desperate for one of the earlier SAB stamp sets (The Sky is The Limit) but once they are gone, they really are gone :(
