"Pasture Birthday" in Water Color

I seem to be running behind a lot lately and needed some belated birthday cards. The "From the Herd" stamp set in the Occasions catalog is perfect for such cards. I haven't played around much with water coloring but did so with these cards. And I love it! I discovered that using Aqua Painters on our Watercolor Paper makes all the difference.

I think my second one turned out the best. You'll see I used the discontinued buttons. Yes, I still have some of those laying around. I always loved the flower-shaped buttons and sometimes wish we still carried them. And the Fringe Scissors made cutting the grass an easy process. I admit that I did use my Wild Wasabi Stampin' Write Marker to draw the stems and leaves freehand.
