As soon as I saw Lil Garden Cottage Stamp Set, I knew I want to color it with Watercolors. There is something magical about this stamp set and it is easy to achieve a dreamy look with watercolors.

The image was stamped with Nuvo Black Shadow Hybrid ink and I used a few different watercolor mediums to color it (Nuvo Aqua Flow, Shimmer Powder,). Some 'moss' was added with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and Irish Sparkle Flocking. Shimmer Powder gives a nice subtle shine but to add even more magical feel, I sprinkled Happiness Super Thick Embossing Powder around the cottage and used the Heat Tool from underneath the paper to melt it. More sparkle was added with Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen. The image was cut with Tonic Layering Basics Die Set Hexagon.
The sentiment is stamped with Nuvo Black Shadow Hybrid ink. I used Aqua Flow pens to add subtle color to this layer as well.
The background layer is very simple. I spritzed the paper with Antique Gold and Fresh Pear Mica Mist. After it was almost dry, I dry embossed it between the Embossing Folder (Craft Concepts -Budding Vine).
Edges of all matting layers were covered with 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Black Diamond Microfine Glitter.
A fuzzy yarn was tied around the background layer and that was all. I don't think this card needed any more embellishments.
Thank you for the visit!
