New Stamps To Play With

I thought I would try out one of the new stamps I purchased at the Buffalo, NY stamp convention a couple of weeks ago.  This stamp, designed by Catherine Scanlon for Art Gone Wild, is one of my favorites.  It is called Cup & Vine AGC2-2762.  I love all of her designs.  I know I will be buying more!
I stamped the image onto a watercolor panel, and watercolored it with Tombow markers and a watercolor brush.  I stamped a bit of the stamp again onto a watercolor scrap, and cut out one of the flowers, painted two of the petals, and added them to the front as though they had fallen from the flowers onto the table.  I hand-lettered the tag onto a piece of scrap watercolor paper, and just added a few spatters and spritz.
I added it to a larger square card to finish it off.

I am adding my card to these challenges:

Allsorts Challenge - New beginnings

Happy Little Stampers Watercolor Challenge - Anything goes - optional spritz

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge  - Anything goes

The Daily Marker 30 Day Color Challenge
