I have two cards for your inspiration today, and a card for the 'free with purchase' stamp.

Card 1:
Zinnias With Monarch 
Graduation Greetings Set of 11 
Seeds Of Today  (previous release)

On Arteza watercolor paper, I stamped the Zinnias With Monarch image with Nocturne VersaFine Claire ink, and watercolored it with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors.  I added some finishing touches of shading and highlights with colored pencil.

For the background, I added a wash of green and a bit of the purple, than added some spatters of purple.  I outlined the panel with a black marker, and foam mounted it to an A2 card front.

I stamped the verse from the Graduation Greetings set onto a cardstock scrap, layered and mounted it with foam tape to the front.  Some sequins finish the card front.

For the inside, I stamped the Seeds Of Today verse, and added one of the blossoms from the zinnias. 

Card 2:
The Happy Housewife 
Because I Said So 

I stamped the background, Because I Said So onto pink cardstock, and adhered it to a gray A2 card front.  I added a gray satin ribbon to the panel before securing.

I colored The Happy Housewife with Tombow markers, fussy-cut her, and added her to the panel with foam tape.


For the inside, I colored and fussy cut the slippers and curlers and attached them to a panel of pink cardstock. 

This month's free with $30 purchase stamp is Wish Upon A Star....
I created the background with the paper that comes with mailed packages.  I use it to line the box when I spray my Shimmering Mist sprays.  I added a bit more Shimmering Bliss, then wadded up the paper, opened it and wadded it again, then opened it.  When it was dry, I trimmed it and secured it to a cardstock panel, then to my card front.

I hope you are inspired by my cards today.  Would you like an extra 10% off your order?  Just use my code, TJ10Lynda.  That's 10% on top of the 15% on the new release stamps, for 25% off!!
