See With Our Hearts

I have missed playing in the color challenges at SCS the past weeks.  It just seems my Tuesdays don't allow me to stamp for fun all the time.   So, it's pretty late in the afternoon, but I had a chance to bring out some new SU stamps and my watercolor brush that I haven't used in a long time for today's colors, they are Basic Grey, Rose Red and Daffodil Delight.


I fell in love with this set from the first time I saw it, the clean lines of these flowers are just so pretty.  The set is called Every Moment, and actually everything on here is SU.  I used the Big Shot and scalloped circles Bigz die to cut out the watercolor paper and then stamped two flowers on it, stamping a 3rd flower on more watercolor paper so that I could cut it out and pop it up.  I also sponged the scallop after coloring to give it that gray haze.

I rounded the bottom corners and also added scallops with my corner rounder to the grey strip on the right to pair with the scallops on the main image.  I used the new Elegant Lines Textured Impressions folder as well.


Here's another picture of the coloring on the flowers too....


The quote reads, "When we see with our hearts, every moment is the most wonderful gift in the world".
