Now, on to my projects.

My first project was inspired by this darling watercolor print that I found on Pinterest:


And here is my interpretation of it:


I used the absolutely adorable Darling Flamingos stamps, as well as the sweet pineapple image from Stand Tall, in conjunction with a palm frond from Mini Wild Florals to stamp a pattern on a simple A2 card base. I stamped the flamingos with the Ruby Collection, the pineapple in gold Delicata ink, and the palm frond in Bright Fern. The greeting from Basic Labels was stamped in Noir ink, then fussy cut. I triple cut the Fabulous die from black cardstock, layered all of them together for a dimensional die cut, and adhered it at an angle, then popped up the labels with dimensional adhesive at a wonky angle. 


My last card for the release is a shaker. It wouldn't have felt like a release from The Ton without a watercolored floral background turned into a shaker card. To start, I heat embossed the stunning new Cherry Blossom Garden background using White Satin Pearl embossing powder onto watercolor card stock. I then painted the image using a pink, black, and gray color scheme with my Zig markers and a wet paintbrush. To create the shaker, I simply die cut some of the silver glitter paper using the largest two dies from the Stitched Rectangle set to create a frame. I filled my shaker with a variety of pink, charcoal, white, and silver gilding from the store. The greeting was from the Lucky Tulip set, white heat embossed on a strip of black card stock. The final touch was to add a few single blooms from Wild Cherry Blossoms that I'd watercolored with the same Zig markers.

Well, that's all for me today! I hope you've enjoyed all of the projects that I and the rest of the team have put together for you. Your next stop on the hop is Lisa Harrolle!
