I seem to be obsessed, lately, with using as few layers as possible. The colors are so pale on this, it was hard to pick with the camera, although IRL, it’s quite pretty.

I found these pretty little bags a few years ago at Michael’s, and bought a stash, but keep hoarding them . . . since I used brown ink for stamping the focal image (it’s softer than black–not so stark?), I decided to try incorporating one of the little brown bags, folding the top over into a pocket.

The mulberry is a nice soft back-drop to the watercolored heart, which is accented with a white gel pen. Only a portion of the canvas image was inked and stamped to the card front.

A small notecard about 2 1/2″ square is inside, when you untie the ribbons to peek into the pocket! Ü

  1. this is adorable!!!

  2. Sweetness! I love that heart/flower stamp. You made it look too cute!!! ;)

  3. That is darling!! I love the mulberry paper behind the heart!

  4. Sharon, typically I’ll use whatever is within reach, chuckle!, but in this instance, because I wanted to watercolor (but not heat emboss) the image and not have it bleed out, I used Stampin’ Up!’s Basic Brown, which is bleed-proof.

  5. What type of brown ink do you use to stamp your focal images with?

  6. WOOHOO, I got my card! LOL
    This is really pretty, love the tiny bag and the fact that it is concealing something! Also like the little flowers in a row, that’s so simple, but so cute! TFS :)
