Watercolor Wonderful

Hello stamping friends! I am back, trying to recover from a busy and FUN weekend of crafting during the 4th annual Inking Idaho on the Road show in Boise. We had such a wonderful time together and I will be blogging about all of the fun over the next few weeks.

Today, I am being highlighted once again internationally by Kylie Bertucci and you are able to VOTE for my project. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so please vote for my project. You can do that here – http://bit.ly/KyliesMarchHighlights
Our theme for this highlight is using the stamp set All Things Thanks! This is a Wonderful stamp set with so many gorgeous sentiments. We wanted to highlight how versatile it really is.

Stunning Watercoloring using the watercolor pencils and aqua painter by Stampin Up! Find more inspiration at www.faithgracestamp.com

This image was stamped using Stazon Black ink and then watercolored using our coordinating colors and an aqua painter. This technique will be featured in my upcoming watercolor class and I would love to have you join me!

The sentiment fits so perfectly for a friend and doesn’t at all take away from the focal point of the image. I just love that!

Thanks for visiting my blog today make sure you head over to Kylie’s blog – http://bit.ly/KyliesMarchHighlights to vote for my project. I would love to be chosen to do an international blog hop.

Friday Favorites

Woot Woot! Do you hear that?? It’s the weekend calling! What are your plans this weekend? I will be getting ready for my first ever mission trip! I am so very excited and I cannot wait to share more about that with you guys in the coming weeks.

Today at SSInkspirations, we are sharing some of our favorites! For me, I couldn’t wait to get some ink onto one of my newest sets, and I KNOW it will be a favorite of mine right from the start.

 Gorgeous waterecolored card featuring the Beautiful You stamp set. For more inspiration visit www.faithgracestamp.com

This image is from the new stamp set found in the Occasions Catalog called Beautiful You.

I absolutely love the free spirit of this set and the sentiments included are on point! Add all of that to the fact that I can watercolor (which is my favorite technique!!) and I will be reaching for this set a LOT over the next few months.

To purchase this set from my online store, just click the photo above. I know you will love it as well!

Our theme this month is summer and the images from the In the Meadow stamp set remind me of the perfect camping spot. Mountains, a clear blue lake and pastures where we might see deer or elk. Our family loves to camp and I know that my husband would be in heaven if we could camp at a place similar to this scene!

SSINK July blog hop

I stamped the images onto our Shimmer White paper using Staz-On ink and watercolored the scene using an aqua painter. I absolutely love to watercolor. I find it so relaxing and rewarding when I am all done with a project!

Join us in the color challenge! Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July everyone. This is the greatest day in America and I hope that you will be celebrating with friends and family. We are super busy putting in a back yard – with 100 degree temps. I swear we are crazy people. But The Lord opened doors for us to do this project now so we are running with it.

This weeks challenge is a great one over at SSInkspiration.

SSINK Color Challenge July

I thought it would be fun to use these colors for something other than stars and stripes!

SSINK CS35 Card

The background was watercolored using the Dapper Denim and an Aqua Painter. I always watercolor on the Shimmery White paper because it will not pill up like our Whisper White.  All of the other elements are from the Sunshine Sayings bundle. This is such a great set with many words and adorable images that can be die cut with the big shot.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Please leave me some blog love in the form of a comment and be sure to subscribe so that you never miss another post!
