Soft & Sweet Sweetbriar Rose

The other day I showed you a card that I created and colored with the Stampin’ Blendabilities (you can see it here). Today’s card has a much softer feel to it since I used my Classic Ink Pads and Blender Pen to color the image this time.

Sweetbriar Rose 1

I’ve stamped the image in StazOn since I planned on coloring it and it won’t run or smear. Water coloring with our Classic Ink is easy, I simply squeezed my ink pad while it was closed to get some of the ink from the pad onto the cover. I could then pick up that ink using my Blender Pen and voila!

Moon Lake meets Adventure Bound

I enjoy water coloring and the Moon Lake stamp set is perfect for this technique.


I used a piece of the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack to guide me as to which colors I chose for this card. I really like this little paper stack since it has a selection of great papers that can be used for all kinds of things, especially masculine cards.

Although there are all kinds of water coloring methods this time I chose to use my Aqua Painters to achieve this soft look. I’ve also used our Natural White card stock instead of our water color paper since I liked it’s earthiness. Can you see the subtle flecking in the card stock? And as long as you use a lighter hand with the water using our card stock is doable, you just have to be more careful not to add too much water to prevent pilling.

So what do you think? Does it give you a feel of being near the water?
