Matryoshka Smiles

I've gotten behind in my homework for the online class I'm taking

So I'm combining my homework from Day 4 and 5 today.  
I am using a technique I learned on day 4 to stamp with a Memento ink and going over it with a aqua brush.  I used watercolor paper for my base with this technique.  Also the homework was to embrace the white space. 

Today's homework was to sketch out how I could use one stamp three ways and make a card using one.  So I took my Matryoska doll and stamped her multiple times moving the stamp lower each time to get the look of open nesting dolls. 

My tag is washi tape on water color paper and made into a tag. I embossed my sentiment. 

This is also for today's Inspiration Challenge IC374 - Villa Sorgenfrei on SCS from 
 Etsy Shop of Villa Sorgenfrei 
I chose these LITTLE RED TULIP EARRINGS as my inspiration
I used nesting dolls instead of tulips and kept all the white space and red outlines
I used two Paper Smooches stamp sets

STAMPS:FOLKal Points, Alphadot (Paper Smooches)
PAPER:Watercolor Paper
INK:Memento Ladybug Red, Versafine Onyx Black
ACCESSORIES:Heat Tool, Ranger Clear Embossing Powder, Anti-Static Pouch, Washi Tape (My Minds Eye The Sweetest Thing Tangerine "Together"), Silver Pearls, 201b Variegated Hemp Twine (RRR), demensional tape, 1/16" hole punch
TECHNIQUES:Heat Embossing. Water Coloring

Totally adorable Lisa!! Yeah, I'm behind too with homework, and with the crazy busy weekend I have coming up, it won't be getting done any time soon.

They really do look like they're "nesting." VERY creative!
