Watercolored Elements of Style

My workshops this month started with my Green Bay Stamp, Scrapbook, and Crafters Club. Basically, it's a group of women who started out scrapbooking and stamping and now includes friends who just want to have a nice Friday night catching up. I bought subs and chips for dinner and we made two projects. Oh yeah, did I mention playing with my niece Clare? Really, little else got done as she was so darn cute.

Here is one card we did make:

Stamps: Elements of Style
Paper: Brocade Blue, Very Vanilla, Sage Shadow
Ink: Ballet Blue Marker, Sage Shadow  Marker, Apricot Appeal Marker
Accessories: Aquapainter, Paper Snips, Scallop Oval Punch, Oval Punch, Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon

I always have too many ideas roaming around in my head for projects, so I consulted my mom who wanted to make the father's day tree card I showed last week. Since that was part of an event she couldn't attend (darn day job), I decided to use the technique- Blurred Watercolor Vision. We markered on the stamp, huffed, stamped, and then used aquapainters to spread the ink from the lines to the centers of the images. So fun!

Isn't that satin ribbon amazing? Want some to use, but don't want to buy in bulk? Check back tomorrow to see how you can participate in my ribbon share!

Happy Stamping!
