Summer Afternoon

It's official...the new 2012-2013 Stampin Up Annual Catalog is out!!!! Here is my first card featuring a stamp set from the new catalog. The stamp set I used is called Summer Afternoon and is actually a Hostess Set in the new catalog.  I have been aching to use my watercolor paper lately, and this stamp set gave me a perfect opportunity to do just that! Check it out!

Stampin Up's Watercolor Paper (#122959) allows you to watercolor like a pro! It absorbs water to help keep the paper flat.  The photo image is not the best, but if you look closely, you will see that, with my aqua painter, I colored the bicycle with Pool Party and Island Indigo. the tires were colored with Basic Gray. With my Lucky Limeade, I was able to paint in the grass area. and tried to create some depth and shadow.

The new catalog is also filled lots of beautiful and fun new Designer Series Paper, but I still have lots of the DSP from the 2011-2012 catalog handy that I don't want to go to waste. So I used various pieces of my Paisley Petals DSP (retired) to add some more color and embellishment.  Stay tuned for more card projects and don't forget to take a look at the new catalog through the link on the right side of my blog!
