Well, I simply MUST enter this card into Simon’s Anything Goes Wednesday Challenge. I won these images from them for getting inspired by all their designers on the last release and making comments. What a fun thing to do and it can be rewarding with free stamps besides all the great ideas. Thank you Simon for the very sweet gift. My daughter and I sat down on Christmas day in the afternoon and each colored up an image of little miss Tree Trimming Kaylee. (the green spots on the stamps are my way of indicating that I have used this image) I now have some very fun new stamps to make cards for next years holidays. and eeps….I have been wanting some of those veneer embellishments and whaddayaknow, they appeared!!
She is such a sweetie. I was trying out some Stampin’ Up water color paper, I guess for me, I like the stuff I get from Michaels better. This seems really coarse on both sides and was not real easy to move the color around. I used pencils and a Ranger water color brush and Sarah used pencils and blender pen. Neither of us was really happy with the results but felt the blender pen worked better. You can see how coarse the paper is on this image.
