Another Reason to Smile

As promised, I have another project today that features the limited edition Reason to Smile stamp set.  This gorgeous set is only available during the month of July and then will never be available again...trust me, you don't want to miss out on this one!  Have a look at today's card and you'll see why...

Soft and pretty birthday card featuring the Reason to Smile stamp set and sentiment from the Occasions Alphabet set.
Pretty, huh?  I so love those daisies!  I also love watercolouring, which is what I did to colour the focal image.  In case you'd like to try it, I used my ink pads and blender pen and started by colouring the blossoms with Pink Pirouette and then shaded with Pretty in Pink.  I added highlights using Regal Rose.  The stems are done in Certainly Celery and I added shadowing all the way around each flower using Sahara Sand.  The DSP in the background is from the Fan Fair pack...lots of great patterns and wonderful colours in that one!
One of the reasons this is such a great stamp set is that it has something for everyone:  beautiful images to colour for those who enjoy that, but also solid image stamps to add colour quickly and easily using 2-Step Stampin' for those who don't.  Gotta love versatility!  Tomorrow I'll show you a card that uses the latter technique...stay tuned!
