I am preparing for a fun weekend of Stamping and chatting and learning with a fun group of gals that have met together for 11 years now. We started out Angels with a stamp company called The Angle Company even though the company is no longer we still are meeting once a year in March for what we call the Madison Mingle. The projects are now made with all different stamps from all kinds of stamp companies. I am wowed every year with the creative projects that people come up with. I always learn something new and get my stamping mojo on.
I am doing a demo this year with the zig water colors and a few other water color techniques. I plan on posting some of my projects on my blog so people can go here to refresh there minds on what I showed them.So thanks for stopping in I hope you learn a new tip or idea.
These two cards are very simple but yet pack a big punch of color. I stamped some outline flowers I had in my stash from Stampin up.( Go through your stash and find some outline stamps I am sure you probably have some) I stamped them with Archival ink on water color paper.I then outlined the inside of the flowers and pulled the color out with a water color brush.I went back and reinforced the darker color in the centers using the same pen for the blue and orange card. For the pink and yellow flowers I went back with a darker shade of the same color and lighly added a tad bit of color and pulled it outward to blend it.
The pretty scripted Happy Birthday is from Raisin Boat Stamps All the write words I love this set nice simple script to used on a card.
Thanks for stopping.
