Garden Gate

It's cold and damp and overcast here today so we'll just having a lazy, hang around the house kind of day. For my DH that means puttering in the basement. For me, that means stamping, of course!

I was in the mood to watercolor today, so I inked up this stamp I got from smARTworks a few weeks ago. I also got to break into my new bottle dew drops...I'm in love with those little things already. Why, oh why, did I only order one bottle? What was I thinking?

OK...back to the card. I stamped my image onto watercolor paper using Stazon Black ink and colored with my Derwent watercolor pencils and an Aqua Brush. The background paper is from the Basic Grey Infuse collection. I Cuttlebug embossed just the bottom half inch of my green mat, and glued on my dew drops with Crystal Effects.

Thanks for looking!
