Stamping just for fun is relaxing. I always love the chance to win a free set of stamps. StampTV always has some fun challenges up so I jumped on over there to see what would fire up my mojo. I did have fun putting both of these together. They were relatively simple. I already had the bear colored and cut out. I tried something new with using gum arabic mixed with water in an aqua painter. You mix equal parts and then use water color pencils. It gives a glistening effect to the color. I would definitely use that again. It works best on water color paper as it helps to move the color around smoothly, keeps the color more liquid as you work with it. I got the gum arabic at a rummage sale but I think you can get it at a baking store more reasonable than at a stamping store. Thanks for visiting. I appreciate all your comments and always take the time to read them.
