Hi All!   I had a chance to unpack my make and takes from the SU incentive cruise trip.  Seems I rarely make mine but I really liked these and wanted a chance to make one.

I did change mine up a bit.  Love the new Touches of Textures stamp set!   Here is the SU version on display. They used the texture stamps to color the flower:

It’s just more freeform style if you don’t want to color.  I’d recommend stamping off first so it’s lighter.


I stamped the main image in Early Espresso and picked up the ink colors with a Blender pen to watercolor.  Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Delightful Dijon, Garden Green and Dapper Denim.



I used the longer distress stamp down the side of the Dapper Denim card.  The paper is from the Moroccan designer series paper.

I hope you find time to stamp today!
