Not a Flower!

(Stamps: Vivid Vases, Express Yourself, Gorgeous Grunge. Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, StaZon Jet Black, SU Crumb Cake. Paper: Crumb Cake, Rich Razzleberry, & Whisper White Card Stock, Coastal Cabana DSP. Accessories: Deco Labels Framelits, Banners Framelits, Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, & Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities, SNAIL Adhesive, Glue Dots, Dimensionals)
This is my first attempt at coloring anything other than a flower with large open spaces. Not a ton of colors to work with...yet. I'm looking forward to the full release of these. I will probably be supplementing with some Copics for what I don't have. I am terrible at watercoloring, so the Blendabilities are a good fit for me.

This was a simple card to color and piece together. I started by coloring the image on Whisper White card stock, then ran it through the Big Shot with the Deco Labels die. I stamped the sentiment on a 1/2" thick strip of Rich Razzleberry that had been run through the Big Shot with the Banners die on both ends. I used my new favorite accessory, the Stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect alignment. So much less waste(and frustration). After running the Coastal Cabana DSP through the Big Shot with the largest Banners die I stamped Gorgeous Grunge at random on Crumb Cake with in of the same color.
It's quite a quick and easy card, but it is by no means plain and boring. Time from concept to taking a photo of it was less than half an hour. Not too bad considering that most of that time was spent choosing my papers and sentiment. Still keeping it clean and simple, just the way I like it.
