Book Stack Congrats

I have been wanting to make a card for my daughter-in-law, but just did not have the time until this week.  She just got a full-time position (starting in September) as an elementary school librarian.   Watercoloring is all the rage lately -- and I wanted to try the "no line" watercoloring that I've seen on various blogs.

So I stamped this image from Flourishes in distress antique linen.  Then colored it with a combination of distress markers and the new Zig clean markers.

Here is an up close view:

I knew I wanted to use this stamp, but I was not sure exactly now to show it off.  So I went looking for sketches and colors.  I thought these two challenges would go nicely with the stamp.

That's about it for me.  I hope you are having a good day!  And thanks for taking a look.
