Happy Anniversary Brian and Jessica

I made this card for my son and daughter-in-law's anniversary. The only catch was that I was late with it (their anniversary was May 22; I mailed the card on the 27th - I hope they got it by the 30th at the latest).

I colored the stamp with watercolor crayons, misted with water, and stamped onto watercolor paper. I tore the image and then used distress inks to color the background. Then I layered it with some patterned papers onto the card.

Lovely card. I'm sure they won't mind waiting for such a great card.

That is a really beautiful card. I love your concept of starting with your own design but then using patterned papers as a background. I didn't know you could get watercolour crayons, I only knew about the pencils. I'm itching to go out and buy some!
