Same Same or Different Stamps #434 and 435

I’ve been wanting to play more with  water colors this year and I had fun doing these two cards.  While they both have the same image and both are water colored it was fun to see how both evolved into two completely different looks.
On the one I used multiple colors in a small area and the blue one is all one color in a large area.   It surely was a fun experiment.  All images are MFT.   I used the argyle back ground stamp on the one with a sparkly embossing powder before laying down the color.  I used water color papers for both images.
I accomplished a few things here.  I made CAS cards.  I used NBUS (never been used schtuff).  I used a stencil. I used translucent embossing powder.  I water colored.  I used dies. I used up stuff from my stash.  Those snowflakes so want to get all used up.  Smile  I used flower soft.  Images are colored with Staedler water color pencils and blended with water brush and on the blue one with a blender pen.

  1. Both of these are adorable! I love the diamond background.

  2. I've always enjoyed seeing the same image on different cards. It is interesting to see how different colors can so change things. Once you use up all those snowflake brads, I'll send you another load. I swear they breed when I'm not around.
