WEEKS ago, Crystal and I got out some watercolor paper and the Brusho and experimented. We were both a little unsure and apprehensive, and you’ll see we started pretty small. We stamped a bunch of small flower branches from Petal Palette (still one of the best stamp sets in the entire catalog) and started playing with the concept of watercolor. I’ve had the results sitting on my desk ever since, waiting to become something greater.
- Stamps: Petal Palette, Marbled
- Color Palette: Whisper White, Island Indigo (retired), Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Pear Pizazz
- Accessories: Brusho, Big Shot, Subtle Dynamic TIEF, Petals and More Thinlits, Watercolor Paper, Pearlized Doilies, Aqua painter, Ink refills, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I know I’ve mentioned the Subtle Dynamic TIEF before, but friends, YOU NEED THIS.
We used Ink Refills to watercolor the images, and then used Brusho to create a background. We were really experimenting more with the concept of a watercolored background than with Brusho as a product, but it ended up working extremely well and we were pleased with the control we achieved.
Adding the doily and the leaf embellishments takes this card up a notch while still making it absolutely mailable. I love ribbon, but I’m frustrated when any embellishment makes a card hard to mail. I don’t hand deliver many cards and they really need to go in an envelope and go out in the world!
Don’t miss that Marbled background stamp. It’s another sleeper. Shop HERE.

Thanks so much for another idea using the Petal Palette stamp set. Another beautiful card. I, too, mail almost every card so I appreciate you and your ideas.
Thank you, Karen. I think Petal Palette is one of the versatile sets in our current catalog and I’m glad you like it too. 🌺
