Bordering on Romance, Some Watercolouring & the NEW Framelits!

So as you can see from my title, although this is a really simple card, it's kind of got a lot going on!  I got the Bordering on Romance stamp set free from Stampin' Up! in December (SO many lovely perks to being a demonstrator!) so I thought it was time that this baby saw some ink!  

And get inky it did!  I stamped my images in Black StazOn and then used my Blender Pen and Classic Ink Pads to do some watercolouring.  I guess it's not technically watercolouring, as I didn't use any water, but I get the best results with this technique.  (I'll try and shoot a video for you before I leave for Leadership.)

Then I used my new Labels Framelits dies to die cut my focal image.  Wanna know what's really awesome?  You can place these dies perfectly over your image and cut out exactly what you want because they are thin metal frames with a completely hollow centre.!  They are so awesome!  

Stamps: Bordering on Romance, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Black StazOn, Pool Party, Certainly Celery
