Yes, I'm still alive! My family has been sick, so I haven't had much time to stamp! But I did have time to get this simple card done today. I love it, even though it's simple-sometimes simple is beautiful...hope you agree!? :) I wasn't even planning on doing a card...I just wanted to play with my new sets and try out some watercoloring with my new markers! I'm very happy with the result!

I started with watercolor (WC) paper and the flowers, from the hostess set Oh, So Lovely and watercolored with my Stampin' Up markers (More mustard, Ruby Red and Always Artichoke). First time using markers to watercolor! I mounted the WC paper on More Mustard and then added a strip of Ruby Red behind that. Before I glued that down, I used my new wheel Rough Texture with Always Artichoke ink and made the base of my card. I then took a scrap of Ruby Red and placed some Always Artichoke brads on the side. Then I took So Many Sayings, another hostess set and inked just the line of words I needed with my Always Artichoke marker and stamped it on the ruby red! And glued everything down!

Sorry, if none of that made any sense! I'm tired, but wanted to get something new on my blog before I went to bed! Thanks for looking and I hope you like it as much as me!
