Watercolor Field Day 5 New Release Spotlight Hop

Hi friends!  Welcome to the final day of Verve's March Spotlight Hops!  I've had so much fun seeing all the amazing inspirations from the Divas and guests this past week.  All the stamps and dies we've been spotlighting this week are available in the Verve Store right now and on sale 20% off!

Once again, I'm the first stop on the hop, so settle in and hop along with us as we take a closer look at at Rise Above, New Beginnings and the Partly Cloudy and Springtime Stitches die sets.



I had my Gansai Tambi watercolors still on my desk from yesterday's card, so decided to use them again to create a sweet little field of flowers scene.  I did a wash of yellow and green, then stamped the stems from New Beginnings and highlighted and watercolored the leaves with a Zig clean color marker.  The flowers are stamped in black on plaid lawn fawn paper and then cut with the coordinating Springtime Stitches set.  I love how easy it is to pop up that inner layer since the dies are exact cuts.


For the sun, I embossed the distressed sun from Rise Above in white onto vellum, then cut with the coordinating Partly Cloudy Die Set.  I embossed the thinking of you sentiment (also from Rise Above) in the center, then cut the stitched circle from the Springtime Stitches Die Set from the same plaid dp paper and layered it behind the sun.  Finished off with some distressed edges on a soft sky card base.  Easy breezy beautiful.  {grin}
