Zig Water Color cards for demo

   


   I am preparing for a fun weekend of Stamping and chatting and learning with a fun group of gals that have met together for 11 years now. We started out Angels with a stamp company called The Angle Company even though the company is no longer we still are meeting once a year in March for what we call the Madison Mingle. The projects are now made with all different stamps from all kinds of stamp companies. I am wowed every year with the creative projects that people come up with. I always learn something new and get my stamping mojo on.
   I am doing a demo this year with the zig water colors and a few other water color techniques. I plan on posting some of my projects on my blog so people can go here to refresh there minds on what I showed them.So thanks for stopping in I hope you learn a new tip or idea.
      These two cards are very simple but yet pack a big punch of color. I stamped some outline flowers I had in my stash from Stampin up.( Go through your stash and find some outline stamps I am sure you probably have some) I stamped them with Archival ink on water color paper.I then outlined the inside of the flowers and pulled the color out with a water color brush.I went back and reinforced the darker color in the centers using the same pen for the blue and orange card. For the pink and yellow flowers I went back with a darker shade of the same color and lighly added a tad bit of color and pulled it outward to blend it.
       The pretty scripted Happy Birthday is from Raisin Boat Stamps All the write words I love this set nice simple script to used on a card.
     Thanks for stopping.

Sweet Valentine treats

 
  These are the cute little Valentine treats I made for my daughter and her friends in Denver. She has family dinner with friends every Sunday evening after helping with Special Olympics Gymnastics.
     They are a stamp I had in my collection. I colored them with Copic markers and added a fun little rhinestone in the center of the flower. I used a Sizzix die for the  little bag topper.
      I hope this inspires you to make some fun treats for your sweeties.

Some sweet tweets for my peeps


I managed to make some cute little Valentine treats for the ladies in my Monday night bible study. I used Raisin boats cute little bird stamp from the stamp set Tree's Company  I stamped them on water color paper and then went around the inside edges  with water base markers and then used a brush dipped in water to pull the color in for a soft look. Very easy and a nice finish. I then cut them out and attached them to my little box's I had made.I added a cut sentiment and some fun rhinestone heart stickers. I put in some Dove hearts and tied it all up with some pink bakers twine.
   I think they will enjoy a little surprise for Valentines Day.
   Thanks for stopping.
