Worm Wishes

I so loved coloring this stamp! She, of course, is a Bella (Stacyfishabella), the small oval is from A Muse (see links on sidebar), and the sentiment is from Bugs and Kisses. It says "sending worm wishes". The celery background is (hard to see) embossed with my Cuttlebug and a Fiskers Texture Plate that has bugs, frogs, and worms on it - really cute.
I stamped the Bella and masked her feet (with a sticky note) to stamp the oval on top, in order to "ground" her. I used Watercolor paper - my personal favorite to watercolor on with Timber Brown Stazon. I also used Cert. Celery, Lavender Lace, and Chocolate Chip cardstock. The coolio flowers with the "stamens" are Prima, of course, and the ribbon is American Crafts.
This was a fun one to make, mostly because of the watercoloring! Hope you like looking at it as much as I did making it!
ETA: A couple people asked me what type of watercolor paper I use, and it's Stampin' Up! brand. Although, I DID just buy a pad at M's that I haven't tried yet to hold me over till I get my SU! order. The only thing is that I wish that they offered a "whiter" color. But as for coloring, it's great - a world of difference from the WW. HTH (that means "hope that helps":))
