First of all, let me just say that I am not an expert with watercoloring. There are some AMAZING folks out there that are incredibly talented when it comes to watercoloring. I’m still learning and with their samples and tips; I’m definitely getting there. And so can you! So don’t be intimidated – especially when it comes to shadows and light, etc. Keep it simple; you can step it up as you become more comfortable with your watercoloring. This is also a great way to color for beginners too because you don’t have to worry about staying in the lines – that’s the beauty of watercoloring…it’s SUPPOSED to ‘look that way’!
I am using the adorable image from the ‘Greeting Card Kids‘ set.
I’m seriously in love with this set of stamps. I simply stamped them in Stazon Black ink, cut them out with my Circle Scissors plus (set at 3.5″, I believe) and I cut the cardstock circles in the same size. Then I adhered the cardstock to the back of my stamped image with some snail adhesive.
And I just HAD to add some Dazzling Diamonds!!!
I am sooooo excited about it! It’s called the ‘ABC’S of the Perfect Handmade Christmas’. Check out the details on my Stampin’ Up! website and I’ll also be posting more about this great promotion in the coming days. Click HERE!
In the meantime, I’ve got to get cracking. I’m participating in an event in Sussex tomorrow – a fundraiser for a Mammography Machine for the Sussex Health Centre. I’ve been busy making cards and gifts to sell and the proceeds will be going directly to this worthy cause. I’d love to see you there! The event will be held at the Sussex Legion from 7-9pm. There is a $5 admission and here’s a list of some of the vendors:
