Moon Lake Watercolor Take 2

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

As I said on Tuesday, when I shared the first watercolor with the gorgeous Moon Lake stamp set from Stampin' Up, the set is perfect for painting. So perfect, that I've painted the main lake image from the set for today's quick and easy card...

Card: Watercolor Paper and Very Vanilla
Ink: Jet Black StazOn, Pear Pizzazz, Tempting Turquoise, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso
Stamp set: Moon Lake
Tools: Aqua Painters and Stampin' Dimensionals

Stamp the image in Jet Black StazOn onto Watercolor paper.
Paint using the Aqua Painters, varying the amount of water to alter the intensity of the color (both the water and sky have been painted in Tempting Turquoise and the leaves and foreground with Pear Pizzazz).
While the image is drying, stamp the sentiment in Early Espresso ink onto the lower right corner of the folded Very Vanilla card.
Pop the watercolor image onto the card with Stampin' Dimensionals

Never mind that I'm still waiting for spring, the scene in the card has me wishing for SUMMER :)
