I’m Stuck On You – Lawn Fawn in Water Colors

Stuck Lawn Fawn

As you might have seen in my latest posts, I am in a water color mood. So I was going through my stamps and was trying to find a different set that could be used with water colors. It just took a few flips through my stash to find this Lawn Fawn set. I started with stamping the two cactus (cacti? cactuses?) on watercolor paper. Next I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with silver Wow embossing powder. For the background, I used three different shades of green from the zig clean color real brush markers …

Hanukkah Card

Today I’d like to share a quick Hanukkah Card with you that is part of a White Elephant gift exchange at work.

Now I used a Zig Clean Color Real Brush in the color Cobalt Blue and colored around the embossing. To get the watercolor look, I added a lot of water to it, turned the paper …

Even though Halloween already passed, we still have fall πŸ˜‰ I checked some “How-To’s” and started stamping the pumpkins on Ranger water color paper using Memento black dye-ink. I learned that I had to stamp the top images first, mask them and stamp the next …

Way too much fun with MFT stamps and stencils

MFT stamps color challenge No 26 - 1

There has to be a first, always. And today it’s the first time sharing a card that I intentionally made for a challenge. Today I’m playing along with the MFT stamps color challenge no. 26 and the Crafting by Design Summer Holidays challenge. The Background I started with preparing my shoe box to ‘color burst’ the background. To get the resist effect, I used the MFT Stencil Diagonal Bars on Canson XL watercolor paper. Than I squirtd some Ken Oliver color bursts on the background and misted everything carefully with water. To create the sun dawn effect, I used the …
