1/24 Stampin' Up Fifth Avenue Floral

Here is a card that I made this past weekend using one of my all time favorite sets . . . Fifth Avenue Floral. It is a set that can be used for nearly every occasion imaginable . . . in this case, sympathy. I started with a base of Natural White card stock. This card stock is great when you want a sturdy card base as it is a heavier weight than our Whisper White. The mat borders in this card are made from Soft Suede card stock. The bottom of the image mat uses a portion of the Ribbon Punch for an elegant accent. If you click directly onto the picture, you computer should bring up a close up picture and you will be able to see that bottom border a little better.

The designer series paper is from a pack called Elegant Soirée. The only ink on this card is Soft Suede. I used it to stamp the image and then used it again to watercolor the lily. The sentiments are from the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set.



The inside of the card has the first flower that I stamped on scratch and then "practiced" coloring. I kind of liked how it turned out so I trimmed it out and adhered it to the inside of my card. To color this card, I used an Aqua Painter and ink from the lid of my ink pad . . . one of my very favorite ways to color. It's important to not use too much water when you use your Aqua Painter. I keep a paper towel handy and I'm constantly wicking extra water away from the tip.
