Say Goodbye to Watercolor Wash

When I first saw the Watercolor Wash stamp in the catalog I had to have it.   I LOVE the look of a watercolor wash but I’m not very good at doing it.  For this card I was inspired by Jennifer McGuire (LOVE HER!), she uses rainbow colors on all sorts of things and I thought it would look good on the Watercolor Wash stamp.  For both cards I used the following Stampin’ Write Markers: Rose Red, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise, and Elegant Eggplant.  All of these colors except Daffodil Delight are retiring.

For the first card, I added the color to the Watercolor Wash stamp using the markers and then I sprayed it a few times with water before stamping.

For the second card, I added the color to the Watercolor Wash stamp using the markers and then I sprayed the paper a few times with water before stamping.

I love how “smooshed” the second card is!  The Happy Birthday was done using Versamark and black embossing powder which is coming back in the new catalog!

Upcoming Craft Fair and Weekly Deals from Stampin’ Up

I apologize for not posting more regularly, you would think after a year of being at home I would have found a schedule.  Well, maybe by next year.

Here are a couple of items I will have for my craft fair this Saturday at the VFW in Blaine, MN.  See this link for more information.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to design and cut out the pieces for the Minon Pencil cup then added details with my white Signo Pen.  I think it came out pretty cute.

This may end up being my Christmas card this year but I think I may like it more on Very Vanilla.

 

As always, here are the weekly deals available in limited quantities.  I used the framelits on some of my other craft fair items.

Freshly Made Sketches #194

And card #3 for the day.  I think this one will be perfect for St. Valentine’s Day…hopefully I can find it then.  🙂

I based it on this sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches blog:

I was playing around with my new Watercolor Wash stamp using Watermelon Wonder ink on Watermelon Wonder cardstock.  I didn’t like how that turned out for a background but I thought it would look good if I used the Sweetheart punch and put it on this card.  Now I like it.  🙂
