Watercolor on Black Paper

I've been in the mood lately to experiment and try new things.  Like water colored hearts stamped on black paper for example.  ;)  I used the Slimline Heart Border stamp set.  It was stamped with Versamark on black water color paper and embossed in gold.  I used Karin Metallic Brushmarkers and Kuretake water colors. I did the wet on wet technique to really blend and move the colors.  Once it was to my liking, I splattered it with a bit of gold, and white acrylic paint.  
The colors are so rich and pretty in person! I added the thinking of you sentiment from the Slimline Heartbeats Die set.  I added a few gold sequins from the St. Patrick's Day Confetti Mix
Thank you for stopping by today!

Hello friends!
I've been home sick all week with some crazy virus.  It's been a long week of coughing, fever, headache, sore throat, and body aches.  I tested negative for CoVid twice and negative for strep.  I am on several things for the symptoms, but only time will allow me to heal from this thing I've got.
All my plans this week were canceled, but it has made me slow down and rest, which I needed.
So even though my illness doesn't require a band aid to fix, I thought today's card was somewhat appropriate! ;)
I used Whimsy Stamp's Big Boo Boo Slim Line Die set.  I cut my band aids in cool colors and adhered them on an angle.  I love how realistic they are! 
I also used the Big BooBoo Clear Stamp set.  I cut it out by hand and adhered directly over the Band Aids.  A red ribbon was added along with some clear sequins to finish it off. 
Just a quick post today friends!

Whimsy's New Release!!!

Good morning!
Whimsy Stamps has done it again! SO many new products, I don't know where to begin! First, this cute Hoppy Easter Bunny Stamp set! Can you say cuteness overboard?! I stamped it with Copic safe ink and colored it with Copics.  Whimsy is now part of the Hot Foil/Plate scene, and this girl couldn't be more thrilled!  I am a complete newbie so I kept it kind of simple! I used the new Mini Slim Notched Hot Foil plates and hot pink foil.  I love the look of the foiling, it makes the card look complete! 
Then to make things a bit more interesting, I used the new, It's Raining stencil.  I used it with a light blue ink, then shifted it and used it with a silvery glitter paste.  While it was wet I was able to wipe off any areas I didn't want it. I set it aside to dry and then decided while it was drying, to stamp another flower, cut it out and add it to the tea cup.  For a finishing touch I added a few X's and O's from the Hugs and Kisses Confetti Mix.  I added confetti to the center of my flower from the Spring Buzz Confetti Mix.
Thank you for stopping by today!
