New Catalog Set - Work of Art

Got my hands on the new Stampin' Up! catalog and at the premiere we also received a new stamp set from it called Work Of Art.  I really like this trend of watercolor.  The set has lots of different swooshes in many sizes.

The final card ended up being notecard size since I liked the proportions the best with the images I finally decided on.  Colors used:  Pistacchio Pudding, Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana.  The flower image from Flowering Flourishes is stamped in Whisper White craft ink and embossed with white embossing powder.

Typically I don't spend too much time at once getting to the end result.  I will do some designing and if I'm not happy with it, I walk away and come back at another time when I think I may have a better solution to it. With this card it took a couple of times to get the right image and proportions.  I started out with a typical A2 size card and bigger swooshes, but I wasn't happy with any of the flower image sizes and boldness.  Here is a shot of some of the samples that didn't work:

Can't wait to get my hands on some more new products from the catalog!
