Romance Week #1

Happy the day before Valentine's Day!  Since this is the week of love and romance, I thought I should do a Romance week of cards featuring Bordering on Romance stamp set from the Occasions Mini catalog.

The very first card this week is inspired by Chiaki.

I don't usually like to color.  But I'm surprised at how nicely this stamp set shows off colors.  I squeezed some ink from the inkpad onto the lid and used my Blender Pen to pick up the color to color.  I started in the center of the flower, then moved out.  I didn't use watercolor paper.  This is just plain Whisper White.  It still took up colors very well.  Remember to draw the Blender Pen on scratch paper until it runs clear, then you can use it to pick up a different color.  The tip of the pen will be discolored, but don't worry about that.  There is no need for different pen for different color here.
