Watercolored Nature - Stampin' Up! Rooted in Nature

  With all the rain we've been having on the from hurricane Florence I thought a card using some watercoloring fit the bill this morning.  We dodged any ill effects from Florence here in Richmond other than on and off again rain but we are certainly praying for all those affected down in the Carolinas.

  My stampers made this card last month at stamp club.  I had wanted to use Rooted in Nature but with a brighter color palette than the natural, toned down look I had been mostly using with this stamp set.  I think it ends up looking a bit like sunrise colors over a savannah maybe?

  The background is watercolored with an Aquapainter and Pineapple Punch, Mango Melody and Grapefruite Grove ink onto watercolor paper.  After drying the paper with a heat gun I squeezed a few drops of water out of the Aquapainter onto the colors then blotted them with a paper towel.

  The sequoia (??) tree is embossed in black onto Very Vanilla paper and cut out.  It's mounted over the the sentiment flag with dimensionals and a bit of the mini black sequin trim.  Then it is all adhered to a Grapefruit Grove card base.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
