July Stamping Technique Class - Watercoloring

This is a wonderful and easy way to make your cards look like an artist had painted the image!!

Stamp your image using Memento Ink or Stazon Ink, then use an Aqua Painter to apply color to your image using re-inkers.

Our first card is pretty special to me, not is it my own design BUT I had submitted this card to a card contest that my upline, Kelly Acheson, had in July and I WON!!!  I was so excited, pleased and I just couldn't wait to tell my class all about it!!

 Card 1 – Thinking of You – You’ve Got This
Stamp Sets:  You’ve Got This, Petite petals
Ink:  Blackberry Bliss, Basic Grey; Re-inkers: Blackberry Bliss, Perfect plum, Crushed Curry, Old Olive

 Our second card is just so dang cute, I just love the saying!!

I CASED this cute little wedding bag from my upline, Kelly Acheson; I just love how it is a card on the front that fits through a slot on the bag.  You can put a small gift inside the bag but I am planning to put together some Thank You cards and a Gift Card inside the bag for a wedding that I will be attending in August.

Hint:  Put the card stock all the way into the label punch with edge of card, make sure that the card fits through the slot.
