Dare to Begin a new Book

Good morning, Junkies!  It's Holly posting today and I'm sharing my watercolored card with you.  I stamped the new Stack of Books onto some watercolor paper with Versafine Clair Pinecone ink.  I then stamped the beautiful sentiment from the new Modern Encouragements set with the same brown ink and let the ink dry completely.  The background was watercolored with a pale gold ochre paint and it looks like old weathered parchment paper (love that!).  Then I used various colors of paint to watercolor all the books.  I deliberately faded the colors so the books look old and worn.

There's just something about starting a new book that feels like a dare, right?  These two stamps were meant to go together.  Have you gone shopping yet?  Feel free to use my code, TJ10Holly, to save money on your stamps when you check out.  Enjoy your week!
