Busy, Busy Day.

I’m in design classes for eight hours today, but there’s a light at the end of the tunnel- I get to go art supply  shopping tonight. It’s my favorite. I’m going to hit up Michael’s, Blick Art Supply, and Archiver’s and spend time with some pretty projects. Hellooooo retail therapy! There’s nothing like a long, hard day rewarded by some art supplies. (And picking up things to giveaway here on my blog. Yay!)

Even though I’m super swamped today with design work, I wanted to pop in and share today’s card and Etsy feature. Here’s today’s card:

 I showed this background really briefly on this watercolor video tutorial. It’s just my favorite Prang watercolors on Vintage Cream PTI cardstock. I just embossed the floating blossoms background stamp with silver embossing powder and then watercolored it in. It’s such an easy, elegant look.

Supplies: Cardstock- Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream, Fine Linen, Pure Poppy), Stamps- Hero Arts (CG147 Floating Blossoms) and Studio Calico (Natalee Alpha), Ink- Tsukineko (Versamark Embossing Ink) and Ranger (Antique Linen Distress Ink), Embossing Powder- Ranger (Silver), Corner Rounder- WRMK.

If you have any questions about how I colored the flowers, check out the video I did a couple weeks ago about watercolor. :)

Today’s featured Etsy seller is my sweet friend, Latrice. At her store, Any Occasion, she sells gorgeous necklaces (flower bibs, button and ribbon) and headbands as well as other projects from time to time. I bought a bead and ribbon necklace from her a couple weeks ago, and I literally have to force myself not to wear it every day. It’s so gorgeous! Here’s a pic of me wearing it:

It’s lovely. It can be dressed down (like here) for a long day at class or dressed up for a night out. i get compliments on it all the time. Here’s some more of her fab products:

 Trinity Feather and Silk Headband in Cream

 Button Cascade Necklace in Pink

Knotted Ribbon and Bead Necklace
