WPlus9: Clean and Simple Watercolor Cards

Since it's October and another WPlus9 release is just around the corner...5 days to be exact, I thought I better play with the last release a bit more! I pulled out the Wishing You stamp set and created 3 very simple cards on my favorite Strathmore Watercolor cards. I colored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens without water  and I have to be honest, it was hard to stop at just three. This stamp set is absolutely adorable and a blast to color.

I kept my first card very simple. I trimmed the cards down to 4.25 x 5.5" (they come 5x7") - stamped the sweet image and sentiment in the middle and wrapped some twine below it. The sentiment comes from the Wishing You Sentiments set - a great add on to the sweet bunnies!

I mean, really, can it BE any cuter?! {done in my best Chandler Bing voice} Rounding out the corners and adding a small scattering of matching sequins was the perfect touch for this card.

I went a little bit further with my last card by adding a window using the My Favorite Things Die-namics LJD Peek-a-Boo Circle Windows. I stamped the bunnies and colored them on the inside adding the sentiment from the Happy Mail stamp set. I kept the front simple adding the Thank You I die cut from the Hand Lettered Thanks die and some small sequin stars.

I am also going to enter my cards into Virginia's View Challenge #19 - hello, I LOVE the theme this month so I am SURE I will be back with more entries, too!!!
