I’ve played some more with watercoloring–a talent/skill that definitely does NOT come naturally to me. But I was really happy with the overall effect when complete. It feels both peaceful and hopeful.
I’ll end up with hundreds of cards made with this stamp set, and at least half of them will use this sentiment. It’s perfect for a myriad of situations, people, circumstances, etc. Paired with a backdrop of the color teal, this card–with the nod to an awareness ribbon as an embellishment–is appropriate for anyone needing some encouragement. But teal is specifically a symbol for ovarian, cervical, and uterine cancers; and also the awareness for sexual assault, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and tsunami victims. To say that this Ribbon of Courage stamp set is multi-purpose would be putting it mildly.
Here’s what I used (all Stampin’ UP!):
- Stamps: Ribbon of Courage
- Ink: Stazon Black for the sentiment; Daffodil Delight for the sunny center; and lots of watery blues everywhere else: Pool Party, Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay
- Paper: Watercolor paper; Bermuda Bay and Whisper White Cardstocks
- Embellishments: Metallic Enamel Shapes; Baker’s Twine from the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit; Bermuda Bay Thick Baker’s Twine; Gold Metallic Thread; White Jute Ribbon (retired)
