STAMPlorations Guest Designer

Wednesday, September 16, 2015

Happy Wednesday STAMPlorations Fans,

I am so excited to have this opportunity to be a guest designer for STAMPlorations' September Challenge (Theme and Sketch No. 38). If you know me, you know I love a good challenge, and this is definitely one! Stamping enthusiasts have an opportunity to use the sketch, theme or both! The theme for September is Music and Stamps. I decided to pair this month's sketch with the beautiful Lotus Love stamp set.

The lotus blossoms were perfect for a watercolor technique. I masked and stamped the images several times using Memento Ink (Tuxedo Black) onto Canson watercolor paper. After drying,  I then used my Gansai Tambi watercolor palette to color my scene. I created a little banner for my sentiment and heat embossed it using Ranger's gold embossing powder. To complete the card, I added a little gold twine and matching sequins. 

Thank you for stopping by. For more product information and inspiration, visit the STAMPlorations shop and blog. You will be glad you did!
