Newton's Nook Designs August Release- Simply Sentimental

Good morning!  It's day two of the Newton's Nook Designs release and boy do I love this new set, Simply Sentimental.  It's full of mix and match sentiments!  Here is what I made:


Don't you love the mix of cursive and print together?  I do!  There are so many combinations in this set- it's perfect for every occasion!

I started out with a kraft card base, embossing it with the large polkadot embossing folder by Stampin' Up!  I stamped out the roses from the Love Grows set with peach, coral, and yellow ink on to  watercolor paper.  Then I watercolored over each one with the same color they were stamped in. I also flicked a little coral mist over the top and let it all dry.

Once it was dry, I stamped my sentiment with black Archival ink.  It's such a pretty crisp black ink!  I stamped the larger word first and then added the smaller words to the top and the bottom.  You could easily line them all up on your stamping block and stamp them at the same time, too!
