My First Sweet Stamp Shop card

... I don't know how that can be - I have several of their adorable stamp sets... how is it that I have only been admiring them rather than using them?!!  Well, corrected that today!  I made this card for one of the DTGD challenges over at SCS using SSS's 'Artsy Fartsy' set, watercolor pencils, regular markers (didn't know how much ink the WC paper would suck up, so I didn't use my Copics), some sequins & homemade enamel dots made from melted pony beads:

My watercoloring technique definitely could use some practice, but I had fun with this card.  Since I was using watercolor pencils, I heat embossed the crayon box & sentiment so they wouldn't run when I dragged my wet paintbrush through them (wasn't sure how embossing powder would do on watercolor paper, did just fine!).


Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you will check out my other post today too!
