For my project today, I used one of Suzy's absolutely fabulous sentiment stamps: Pour Yourself A Drink. We all have days where we just need a little pick-me-up, and this card would surely accomplish that for me!
I started by stamping the fun So Suzy sentiment using Versamark on plain white card stock. I heat embossed it in clear, then trimmed down the sides to create a 3 3/4"x 5" panel. Next came the watercoloring; I stamped the gorgeous chica from The Ton's Born Classy and some of the lovely roses from Fresh Cut Garden Roses Outlines onto some watercolor paper using Versamark ink, which I then heat embossed with clear EP.
I watercolored Ms. Sassy Pants with a combination of dark blue and bright turquoise Zig markers to create this gorgeous teal-y blue-y gown. (yes, I use technical terminology.) I heat embossed the feather mermaid tail included in the Born Classy set using some dark silver glitter embossing powder on vellum. Of course she had to have a drink to help her pull herself together, so I stamped and colored a glass of champagne for her. I die cut everything with the coordinating dies, then turned to the roses.
The roses... You know I can't resist adding flowers, especially on a super feminine card like this one. Kinda helps balance the sassiness, don't you think? I water colored the Fresh Cut Garden Roses Outlines with bright fuchsia and purple Zig markers, then watercolored the leaves with some dark teal to coordinate with the dress. I die cut the blooms with their coordinating dies, then began assembling my project. I popped up the sentiment panel with dimensional adhesive, then added my florals and my sassy chica.
