Helping me grow and New Incolors

Dapper Denim, So Saffron Pear Pizzazz and Crumb Cake

I was very happy to see that the Helping Me Grow stamp set made it into the New Annual Catalog.  It was a set I purchased with my goodies from the occasional catalog but was not able to play.  I thought it was a fun set to play with the new in-colors.  I made these cards more than a month ago, it just took me awhile to upload them, sorry about that.  

My favorite new in color is the Dapper Denim, Sugar Plum and Emerald Envy (which I did not play with).  I was very excited about the Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo but they are brighter than I would like but I am sure they will grow on me.  

I tried a new technique with water coloring these cards.  I used my re-inkers and Whisper White Shimmer Paper.  I have been reading about it lately but really wanted to try it.  I highly recommend you heat emboss the flower image before you watercolor.  I think it works a lot easier.  The only card I heat emboss was Sugar Plum Card and it was a lot easier to watercolor and really made the colors pop.  

I also took scissor to my Flower Image and separated the flowers to make it easier to create this card.
