More Reason to Smile

Goodness me the Olympics have been exciting and I am thrilled with how well Team GB are doing, to be third on the medal table is a wonderful achievement.  

In case that is not enought to make you smile Stampin' Up! have given us another one - a gorgeous stamp set called Reason to Smile.  It is only available in August and you can either purchase it or earn it for free - check this link for details.

Today I am going to show you a pair of water coloured birthday cards I have made with this beautiful set.

The image was coloured with my Stampin' Write Markers onto Watercolour Paper, then coloured using a water brush.  Next I stamped over the top of it with the matching solid image in versamark ink and used clear embossing powder so that I could then wash colour all over the background.

This technique allows you to decide how much colour you keep on your flower, I am not sure which I prefer, the darker one of the lighter one.
