Technique Tuesday: May Greenhouse Society

It's Greenhouse Society time on the Technique Tuesday blog. Greenhouse Society is a monthly club featuring botanical-themed stamps. This set features five stamps in a 3" x 4" sheet. I love that the sentiments are so varied. And the rose is neutral enough that you can mix and match with any other sentiment stamps that you like.

For this card, I stamped the rose with Versamark and embossed it with some clear powder. Then I used Technique Tuesday's watercolor crayons to apply a multi-colored wash. I like to mix the crayon with water before I apply it. But you could draw directly onto the card, and then add water. Saves a whole step and some clean up.

I finished the card by stamping one of the sentiments on some twill and adding some matching bling (Doodlebug). Other than the drying time of the painted cardstock, it's an easy-to-make card. Which pretty much describes all of my projects. Ha!
