Watercolored Pansies

The challenge this week at the Sweet Stamps Blog is Watercolor.  I love to use their stamps on vellum, but they also are amazing with watercolors.  I used their stamp, Pansy Layers Frame (474), and heat embossed it in white on watercolor paper.  I lightly spritzed it with water and painted it with purple and yellow watercolors.  I added some light coloring around the frame to bring out the image more.  The pansy borders are created with a Martha Stewart border punch. 

Tonight is short and sweet since I plan to head to bed early.  Starting back to work and getting up really early is a big adjustment for me and with a class of 30 little five year olds I come home pretty tired.  They are a very sweet class!!

This is lovely. The white embossing powder really sets the pansies off. Thanks for sharing with us at Dutch Dare Card Challenges this week.
