Stamp Review Crew - Enduring Beauty

Hello stampers,

It's the 1st Monday of the month & that brings another Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop. We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world who share different ideas made with the featured stamp set. This week that stamp set is Enduring Beauty.

My intent was to make a card using the Sepia Watercolor technique, however, using Pecan Pie Ink just wasn't working for me but I still tried to salvage it. However, the end result reminds me more of a Faux Leather, with the texture of the Watercolor Paper. So I started the card with Watercolor Paper, Water Painters & Pecan Pie Ink, & then I tried to add a bit of Crushed Curry Ink, which again didn't work out, so I just tried adding more Pecan Pie Ink, then used the Heat Tool to dry it then used a Blending Brush with Pecan Pie Ink to go around the edges. I then used Early Espresso Ink with the bouquet in Enduring Beauty Stamp Set to stamp directly onto the background. I used the same technique for the sentiment which was then backed with Early Espresso Cardstock. The focal image was backed with Early Espresso & Very Vanilla Cardstock layers which was then added to a Pecan Pie Cardstock base. I used some retired Neutral Dots (Early Espresso) to finish the card.
