WooHoo

Remember how I said you'd see the large Dahlia stamp again...here she is! What I love the most about this stamps is you really don't have to add lots of embellishments to dress it up. 

This first card I color washed the background watercolor paper with Color Bursts and heat set. I then sprayed the stamps with water and stamped the background. Let the stamp sit on the panel for a few seconds so the water gets absorbed.  I then embossed in white "Woohoo".


This next card I color washed a background panel with Color Bursts again.  After it dried I stamped the Dahlia and embossed with white embossing powder. I then added more color to some of the petals with the color wash.  It's very subtle which was the look I was going for. 

I'm not sure I got this stamp out of my system yet...you might see more :)

Welcome to September's Artist Team Blog Hop brought to you by Club Scrap. This month we've been challenged to incorporate watercolor techniques with our projects. I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to dust off those Faber-Castell Gelatos.  If you just happened on the blog hop today because you're a regular reader of my blog, and you'd like to view the entire hop, you can start back at Club Scrap. If you're already hopping and linked to me from Tina's Blog, you're in the right spot. Gelatos are acid-free pigment ink sticks that can be used with or without water.  I love the bright colors and creamy texture of the Gelatos.  The fact they look like lipstick tubes is kinda cute too. 1. Directly color the stamp with your gelatos. I usually start with the lightest color first and work to the darkest. 2. Mist water directly on to the stamp. 3. Stamp image onto paper.  I used all sorts of papers: cardstock, watercolor and mixed media papers. I d…
