Calligraphy and watercolor go hand-in-hand...

Calligraphy is so hot in stationery these days, so I'm extremely happy that it's making its way into card making as well! Here I've used the Calligraphy Classics stamp set, along with some watercoloring/painting of my own.
To make these, I started off stamping the sentiment in a lighter pink color, then used a wet paintbrush to paint over it. When dry, I stamped the sentiments again over the top in Pure Poppy. The leaves were painted by myself with a teal watercolor paint and a tiny bit of gray and black mixed in. Before I did the leaves, I actually stamped 2 flowers with the Paper Clippings: Thinking of You stamp set.

Swing by the Scrapbook Expo blog to read the tutorial!

Hope you are having a great day!
