Bountiful - revisited

Here's the same smARTworks stamp from yesterday, in a much simpler format. This one is watercolored using Twinkling H20s, watercolor paints that are full of sparkly mica powders. I also used some white acrylic paint, applied with the end of my embossing stylus, for bunches of white dots as highlights on the scene.

I scribbled around the edge a bit, just to break up the white. The mini bow is just glued on - there's actually a different one on it now, because Benny decided I didn't need the first one, and pulled it off. AAAAAAAA!

The scalloped edge is done with an element on the Coluzzle envelope template. I think that's the only thing I've used on that particular template...why was it I "needed" it again? I punched holes with a handheld punch, and put white paper behind the holes so that would show through. There's more "uncool" background paper - ah, plaids...
