My creation for today is featuring the watercolor wash technique. A few drops of re-inker & water in a cup.....*paint* your watercolor paper; let dry and stamp---eazy peezy!!! I also decided to use more colors I rarely reach for....Sage Shadow is severely neglected in my home although it seems to go with Chocolate Chip very well!! I spiced up the background a bit with my fave texture plate, sponged around the edges of my stamped piece & decided at the last minute to add micro beads to the center of my flowers. The Soft Summer set from the mini is fast becoming my fave set but looking at it; it just needed that little something more. I added the micro beads & colored them with my SU! markers....I really like the final result!!
On a seriously happy note, I won last week's Twisted Thursday challenge! I never win anything so I was so excited to get that email from Karolyn. I'm looking forward to this week's sketch....hopefully you'll all play along too!! Now I need to get things ready for tonight's class....thanks so much for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!!

You can seriously rock the flower stamps my friend!!!
This is a beautiful card! I have only used Sage Shadow card stock a few times so it is a much neglected color in my stamp space as well! I love the combo you used, and the inspiration you gave me to use it as well. Thank you and TYFS!ReplyDelete
Beautiful, Jackie!! Love this technique, and the colors!! I rarely reach for sage shadow either...thanks for the inspiration!ReplyDelete
