Hi everyone! Life goes on and I'm back to the regular old grind of being Mom. The boys have been very sweet and are still telling me that they missed me while I was gone. I really missed their cute little faces too.
So, I have a big of news to share. If you would like a chance to be a reporter for Craft Critique head on over for all the details.
And here is a card that I made before I left that I didn't get around to sharing. Its just a continuation with my fascination and practice using my watercolor brush. Now that I have found the joys of using good watercolor paper, I'm hooked. I borrowed this gorgeous flower stamp from my stamping friend Becky and stamped it 3 times with Versacolor Black ink and embossed it with clear powder. I then used a Twinkling H2O from Luminarte to color in my flowers. If you haven't Twinkling H2O's, they are a lot of fun to use and super easy. Another cool aspect about them is that they have a lot of shimmer incorporated in them too. My final step was to cut out various pieces of the flowers and layer them with pop dots.
I paired my stamped image with some Basic Grey and added some stitching for some extra interest. And of course a little bit of bling from Kaisercraft never hurts.
Note, this card ended up being approximately 5x7.
And finally, one last piece of information to share. I have another tutorial on the Clear Dollar Blog that I had a lot of fun doing. I also used the Twinkling H2O's for that tutorial. Go check it out :) Here are a couple of hints:
