WORKING ON SANTA CARDS AND OR GIFT TAGS....
I could not pass these two stamps from Whipper Snapper arts. I found them at Addicted to Rubberstamping. Last week they had a sale going on with free shipping needless to say I bought these two and some Twinkling H2Os... some more watercolor tools. Well tonight I took out the new watercolor cakes and these stamps and got to play before bed.... yes I am a night owl tonight... with the cantata at church and the holiday season my time seems to have me doing everyday housework and my crafting late at night while the kids sleep.
I took some of stampin ups Love notes from the new winter mini to use as my base for these. I stamped the image in basic black and used both stampin up's watercolor crayons and my new Twinkling H2Os. The twinkling H2Os add a shimmer to the image and they have such beautiful colors... the only reason I used my Stampin up crayon's is because I have yet to get a red in these great new watercolor cakes. Each color comes in a little cake in its own little container... They have 144 different colors as of right now... I see a new addiction... After coloring in my images I took my gelly roll stardust pen and outline my penguins to add to the sparkles... I really wish I could pick up the sparkle these have with my camera... well I am off for the night and will try to be back tomorrow with something new..
