New Release and Blog Hop - The Cat's Pajamas Stamps
It's release day at The Cat's Pajamas Stamps! By now, I am sure you all have your lists ready for all the stamps you are ready to purchase. Keep in mind that with your $65 purchase, you will get the Sending Cut Up for FREE!
As with every release, we have a blog hop to celebrate and we are kicking it off on JULIE'S Blog, so be sure to start there. With this hop, we also have the first day of our Flowers challenge.
For my card today I am sharing with you one that I used the new Sketchy Flowers set for. This set is perfect for water coloring, so I couldn't resist making a card using water colors.
I started the base using some Canson watercolor paper. I then used my distress inks on an acrylic block to be mixed with my brush saturated with water to run over the entire panel. I quickly dried it with my heat gun before stamping the flowers. For that, I brush water over the stamp before stamping my distress ink pad around the petals and used my distress stains to dab the center of the flower and then stamp onto the panel. Again, quickly heat dried it before I sprayed it with white picket fence distress inks and dropping a few drops of water onto it. Using the new 'Sending' cut up, I started with that for the sentiment and stamped the sunshine directly onto the panel. It was then finished with some pearls for a little bling.
