Hand-Stamped Sentiments Watercolor Technique Challenge

For those of you who have been encouraging me to get a “blog” — TA DUM!!!  I’ve finally made my first step toward learning how to blog and with Genevieve’s help & expertise, I’m off and running — well crawling.   OK — with that announcement – I’m ready to begin.

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a technique challenge — Watercolor.   I decided to use the Stampin’Up! Textured Embossing Folders  – Square Lattice (#119976 $7.95 ) and my new stamp set from the new Spanish catalog (Flores Suaves #112913) that I earned from Stampin’ Up!   I also used our new In-Colors (Poppy Parade and Pear Pizzazz.    The textured embossing gives the tulips dimension.  I really enjoyed making this card while chatting on the phone with Gen.
