I stamped Alesa Baker's new image, Wire Garden Bench, with StazOn Ultramarine. It was painted with Twinkling H2O's Sapphire On Ice. The great thing about watercolor is the different shades from just one color. I highlighted the flowers with a Clear Sakuro Glaze Gel Pen
The edge was done with Martha Stewart's Around The Page String Lace and Neenah Classic Solar White Text paper. I didn't like the white so I ran the StazOn Ultramarine over it and mounted the image on to.
I thought Impression Obsession's Cover-A-CardTM Round Floral in Ancient Page Cobalt would look a lot like Delft tiles. I stamped it once using my Mega MountTM, for the 5.25X5.25 background, and once more for the left inside of the card, the lower left-hand corner of the envelope and the 4 square tiles you see on the corners. I first punched the three squares like you see in the lower right-hand corner where you see the word "hello" with a .75" punch. I highlighted them with a Clear Sakuro Glaze Gel Pen. Then to get the other 3 tiles I used a .5" punch. They were mounted with 3D pop dots. One of the left over hollow frames was used for the word "hello", from Impression Obsession's Sentiments II Clear Stamp Set.
The image was placed on the background with 3D pop dots. I mounted the white seam binding ribbon and then mounted all to the folded card, added the pearl embellishments, did the inside and the envelope and done.
