Watercolored Winter Card

Often when my family camps, I take stuff to watercolor with me, so that I have something to do without packing an extra trailer full of stuff. I have a small space that is my Stamping Cubby, and it is just right to bring my watercolor crayons, colored pencils, and Aqua Painter brushes and clipboard. That's how I found time to come up with a card with all the watercoloring detail in December, that part was done last August! Wanting to keep a coutry homespun look to it, I opted to use the Ivory Naturals card stock and cuttlebugged the dotted texture onto the card...I love how these textures look on the Naturals card stocks. The Stampin' Up! set "Quilted Quotes" was a Level 3 Hostess set of 4 ~ Way. way, way back in 2001. Has it been that long?
C-Ya Later!

I love this card! You did a beautiful job with the watercoloring. It looks like it took you a lonnnng time to color it all in! Beautiful work!

Hi Cheryl,
The answer to your question about the Circle Flip Up Book is yes it does fold flat for carrying. It's a great project and the tutorial is on SCS in Resources. Glad you like it!!
