Stampin' Up! Apothecary Art Detail1

I just *love* the new Occasions Mini Catalog set ‘Apothecary Art’ (wood: #125525, clear: #125527) that so perfectly coordinates with our new Sizzix Framelits die set called ‘Labels Collection’ for the Big Shot.  If you have been holding out getting a Big Shot, I think the new Framelits dies are going to be what finally pushes you over the edge, LOL!

This is one of the cards that is part of my new online order gift… read all about your purchase gifts here.  The card is ‘Not Quite Navy’ cardstock, the image is stamped in Black StazOn and colored in with the Watercolor Wonder Crayons and a blender pen (which is a change for me, I usually use the Aquapainters, but this time I wanted a more ‘controlled’ watercolor look).  The layer in the middle is Soft Suede and the flowers in the focal image were shaded (outside) with the Soft Suede Watercolor Crayon (from the Neutrals collection).

Other accessories I used are:  Basic Pearls (#119247), ‘Victoria‘ (#118481) Crochet Trim ribbon, (new) Twitterpated Designer Buttons (from the Occasions Mini Catalog).  Other Sizzix accessories are the Embossing Folders:  Elegant Lines #119277 and Square Lattice #119976.
