Watercolor Thinking of You – by Sharon Johnson

I simply adore the beautiful, dreamy look of watercolor images. And what better way to get that look than to use the beautiful watercolor florals by Ken Oliver. And that’s just what I did for the card I’m sharing today. It’s actually a card we’ll be making at tomorrow’s Make-N-Take Mini Class. Take a look:

Ken Oliver 7 640x503

This is a simple make but so pretty with the gorgeous paper.

I can’t tell you how much I LOVE the papers from Ken Oliver. There are the beautiful watercolor paper collections like I’ve used today, and then there are the beautiful photo type images of buildings, bridges, etc. which are so perfect for those harder to make masculine cards. Thank you, Ken Oliver!

Here’s what I used:

Stamps:Wedding Wishes by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps

Paper: Watercolored Memories by Ken Oliver – 6×6

Ink: VersaFine Vintage Sepia

Ribbon: Venise Lace – Valentina Ivory

Adhesives: EZ Runner, Scor Tape, 3D Foam Squares

SS-Sent001 Wedding Wishes Stamps WEB 300514

Wedding Wishes clear stamp set by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps

WC Memories 6x6

Watercolored Memories by Ken Oliver available in 66 and 1212

This collection is beyond gorgeous. For those of you who love the popular watercolor look in florals but have neither the time nor talent to create such beauties, this collection is THE answer! Wait until you see them! The same image is on both sides of the paper – bright on one side and very muted on the reverse side.

First look at these beauties and all I could think of is that I NEED to frame these dreamy images in 12×12 for the wall. How GORGEOUS would that be!
