Quick & Easy Cameo Love

Hi, everyone!  Broni here, and today I have a quick & easy card that really doesn't look quick & easy!  I used the Sweet Victoria stamp set from Sweet Stamp Shop.  It's perfect for this type of card!

I stamped my flower outlines in Distress inks on some watercolor paper.  Then I took my water brush and colored them in, using some extra ink that I had smashed onto my craft sheet.  No need to be neat....just slap on the ink!

Next I stamped the leaves in some Shabby Shutters ink, then I spritzed the whole thing with water using a mini-mister.

I dried it with my heat tool, rounded the right edges of it and all my other layers.  I stamped the silhouette in Memento Gray Flannel ink, cut it out and popped it up on Scotch foam mounting tape.  Then I stamped the sentiment in the same Gray Flannel and tied the ribbon on.  I attached all the layers together and I was done!

Here it is again:

Wow!  It took me just as long to put this post together as it did to make the card!

That's it for me.  Thanks so much for stopping in and I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Pink and gray is such an elegant colour combination. I really like the watercolour effect you achieved on the stamped images. So soft and pretty. Just gorgeous!
