I almost forgot to post this 2nd card, but I think it is too pretty to just ignore it, so here it is!
I stamped my image using SSS's Spring Flowers (and who doesn't NEED a little Spring right now?!!) with Versamark and heat embossed with silver, and then watercoloured with my zigs. I masked the bottom portion of the stem and leaves and then stamped with Smokey Slate ink using SU!'s En Francais (retired) background stamp. I also used the same background stamp to stamp very lightly on my card base. To keep with the theme this month, I used SSS's Stacked Hearts die to add to my background in white, so that it shows up but doesn't dominate the card. Using the hearts die in the background also means that it doesn't scream Valentine's Day and I can use the card year round.
I mounted my watercoloured piece onto a piece of black cs and then adhered to my card base. I specifically left off a sentiment so I can decide later what to use the card for...a simple hello, thinking of you, sympathy, or even birthday. :0)
