Let's Celebrate Card using Waterfront

A colleague of mine celebrated his birthday today, so I took the opportunity to have a play with the Waterfront stamp set. He's a fantastic watercolour artist himself, so I was taking a bit of a risk but I'm happy to say he liked it! He even asked me if I'd painted it myself, which is praise indeed! I stamped the images onto watercolour paper, which really does add to the hand-painted effect. I love how easy it is to build a gorgeous scene with just a few colours and the stamps, I can see this set getting a lot of use in the future!

I used the fab Amazing You stamp set from this year's Sale-a-bration catalogue for the sentiment. There's also a lovely flower stamp in the set, and it's free when you spend £45. Sale-a-bration runs until the end of March, so you've still got plenty of time to get your hands on the set!

Thanks for stopping by, it's lovely to see you! I'd love it if you left me a comment to let me know that you've visited, and maybe even show me some of your own creations? You can also find me on facebook as Scrapping Mojo Designs if you fancy joining me there. I'm going to do a small giveaway when I reach 100 page likes :)
