New use for the Oval Punch!

Good Evening!!!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
My weekend was good. I had my team meeting this past Saturday which I always enjoy! You know what happened though? In the rush of getting out the door with my make n take, samples from the cruise, swaps i've rec'd, gifts from SU on the cruise, door prizes etc...I totally forgot my file folder with all my paperwork in it! It has my agenda, notes I took from the cruise etc.....
It also had this card in it that I had made to show the gals. On the cruise they mentioned another great idea for the oval stamps....and here is a card I made using that idea! I stamped in black stazon and used my aqua painter and reinkers to colour in. Then stamped the image on a 'post it note' and placed over the coloured image....(esp the lower half of the watering can) On a piece of vellum cardstock I punched one large oval punch out on the bottom, and turned it around and punched a small oval out. (this is my template I can use over and over) I then layed my template over the bottom of the watering can and sponged green stazon over it. When I lifted the template I was left with this perfect anchoring oval!!! If you have any questions about this please feel free to ask away.
I have my 'Just Punchy' card class this thursday which will be a fun class...
Anyway lots on my 'to do' list tonight so that's all folks.
Happy Stampin'

I love this card!! It's so pretty, an amazing job coloring too. Did you use the crayons for this? Is that watercolor paper? Do tell... and is that hand doodling on the side? Love, love, love it!! :)
