Happy Tuesday yall!! We're smack-dab in the middle of Release week at The Rabbit Hole Designs. This week's May release includes 5 stamp sets, 1 die set and two stencils. For my card today I used the NEW Hippo Botanical set along with the NEW Amanda Stencil.
This set really has 2 gorgeous main images (you can scroll down to see the entire set), but I had my mind set on using the water lilies in the set with some watercoloring. So I started off with the Amanda stencil…. I placed it on some apple green cs and went over it with some green Oxide Ink and cut it to size. Next I used some water color paper and some shimmerz paints. Once I got the "pond" the colors I wanted I "tore" it to shape. I wanted a few of the leaf fronds in front of the pond so I used an exact-o knife to cut along a few leaves then tucked the pond behind it.
Next up I colored up a couple of each of the Lily Pads from the stamp set and cut them out. It's a little hard to see, but I added some silver gel glitter pen to a few of them. The Lily Pads are popped up on the pond as is the sentiment (which is from the Turtle Botanical set).
Well that's it for me, here's the complete hop list for today… be sure to pop by and visit the rest of the team!
These are the products used for today's share…
