Neat & Tangled: Have Courage


Hi there! Welcome to the first day of the April  Neat & Tangled release countdown! All of the new products will be available in the Neat & Tangled Store on Friday April 6th at 8:00 am EST!

Today we are showcasing a stunning new stamp set called Have Courage. Such beautiful images and lovely sentiments too!


Now I am pretty sure this is a Ginkgo plant, and I am aware they are green, but I took creative license here and colored mine a little differently. I really like this combination of colors. I stamped the image and the sentiment all on watercolor paper with waterproof black  ink using my MISTI stamping tool. I then used Peerless watercolors to paint them.


After everything was good and dry, I speckled it with more of the same colors of paint and some white ink as well. I then mounted this piece onto a top folded A2 size card base.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today! I will be back tomorrow with more Neat & Tangled previews!

Be sure to stop by the Neat and Tangled Blog to see all of the design team inspiration! 


Don't forget - there is a giveaway every day this week of the set(s) being featured that day, and a $25 gift certificate up for grabs at the end of the week. Comment on all of the design team blogs all week for a chance to win.  Winners will be announced on the Neat & Tangled Blog Friday at 7:30am EST!




Thanks so much for stopping by!
