watercolor hello by Diane Zechman

Hello Ai friends and happy Monday!
Today I am sharing a card using the Ai 4867- WC Foliage Set 2 and 4052- WC Flower Set.  Is it October already? Fall is in the air but last week we still had 90° temps in NE PA!  I pulled out some summery inks, but wouldn't this also be pretty in fall colors?

I borrowed this layout from a card I saw quite some time ago but there was no info to give credit to.  I loved the simplicity of it!  Instead of using the watercolor images on watercolor paper, I stamped them onto white cardstock and skipped the water!  ;)  I saw that Bonnie posted a video last week, also making a wreath!  How funny!  If you missed it, you can check out how Bonnie created hers here!
To get a nice shaped wreath, I traced two circles (using circle dies) onto scrap cardstock in the place I wanted the wreath to go. With the MISTI tool I aligned the stamps with the circles which made this super easy!

Have a great Monday and… happy stamping!

Love the CAS design! It's just stunning and love how you put a piece of ribbon for the "hello" to sit on!
