SSC221 & PPA112

Just a quick little card using the sketch from Stamping 411 this week:


I took some artistic liberty and flipped the sketch, using the floral image that was already on the Beau Chateau Side Note as my focal point:


I watercolored the pre-stamped image with my aquapainter;


added some embossed hearts and crochet trim; then stamped the sentiment from Style Beautiful in Not Quite Navy:


My Stamp-a-ma-Jig ensured that I got this beautiful script right where I wanted it! Thanks for visiting today! This also qualifies for the Pals Paper Arts challenge this week, which is to use lace!
