Summer Sailboat


Too hot to be outside so I've been playing around with my watercolor crayons and thought I might try my hand at a freehand sailboat! It was quite fun and easier than I thought. It needed a little something so I drew a little island and lighthouse in the background. The "friend" stamp is from Flourishes.
I used 140lb Canson watercolor paper and mounted it on SU Tempting Turquoise.
Hope you like it!

Such a beautiful spring day today! Today's Ways to Use it Challenge is featuring bugs, butterflies, bees well...you get it. I love adding butterflies when a card just needs a little something else. This butterfly was punched once in Brocade Blue and then again using a lace patterned vellum, finished off with a half pearl. The dandelion stamp is from Great Inspirations and the sentiment is from Winged Things stamped in Brocade Blue. The dandelions (hard to see) were finished off with Stickles.
Thanks for looking....have a beautiful day!

Colors of Summer


A very gloomy day here in beautiful MD so the CAS challenge at Splitcoaststampers was perfect...a summer theme! My inspiration actually came from a pair of panties that I saw in Aeropostale while shopping with my daughter. I used SU water color crayons and a VERY wet brush. The colors were pounced with a water color brush...(not one of my good ones!) onto water color paper.







The first flower was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black. Then I used the masking technique to cover the flower. Masking is one of my favorite techniques...stamp your image onto a sticky note and cut out. Use that image to cover the first stamped image. Stamp the same or other images onto the post it . See below:















Trim your image and mount. I used Bazzill texured white for the card base. You can buy it here:
