Now for my projects


My first card I used a piece of watercolor paper and the Mini MISTI to stamp a bunch of floral images because I really didn't know what I wanted to do. We were heading out for our anniversary trip and I had to get a card made before I left because we would not return until after the hop.
 I used the Anemone set and stamped the floral images using Versafine ink, because I knew I wanted to watercolor them. Anytime I stamp on watercolor paper I always use my MISTI to make sure I get a crisp image because of the texture. After stamping several images I colored them using Zig clean color pens and then cut them out using the coordinating die. For the background I used Distress Oxide inks in Worn Lipstick, Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmalade.





Since I had so many floral images I decided to make a second card in the same color scheme. I brought the supplies with me in case I had some free time on our trip which I did, while the hubs was watching football I made this second card. I used Distress Oxide inks for the background on this one as well, I just splattered it on and made a couple brush strokes in the center.


That's all for me your next stop is Jill Hawkins and I promise she will have something beautiful to share.
Here is the full list in case you get lost, don't forget to leave comments on everyone's blog to be eligible to win
