My 3D project holds a pack of gum.  I always try to coordinate the colors of the project with what is inside.

Free as a Bird

Handmade card created with Stampin' Up's Free as a Bird stamp set.  #Stampin' Up, #Stampin' Gala, #Water coloring, #Birthday, #Thinking of You

I wanted to create a card that can be used for many occasions for my newsletter this week.  I am in need of a card to send out for gifts that I received during the holiday season.  I think this card will work perfectly.  

The image is from the Free as a Bird stamp set.

I stamped the image on Shimmery White card stock with Stazon Ink and water colored the image using a Water Painter.  If you haven’t tried water coloring, it is so easy and fun with our Water Painters.  Here is a closer look.
