Hello and welcome! I was making some January birthday cards for some fabulous ladies and decided to break out the watercolors and have some fun! I stamped and embossed the image from the Close to My Heart "Fabulous You" stamp set on some paper from my Canson XL Multi Media pad. Then I colored background with Pearlescent Watercolors and the image with Derwent Inktense Pencils and water. (This was my first time using the Inktense Pencils and I have to say I am very pleased with them.)

I die cut the image with Spellbinders Stately Circles, layered it on Painted Fancy DP from Recollections and Soft Subtles Cardstock from SU!. Then I added some punched corners and bling from my stash.

As a final touch, I took another piece of the decorative paper and used my Envelope Punch Board to make a matching envelope. Project complete!

I hope today's project has inspired you to break out the watercolors and have some fun. Thanks so much for stopping by!
