Cute Little Girls!

Aren't these girls just darling? The stamps are Hero Arts and Soni made these great cards using Copic markers.
At the next Copic marker class, we will use this stamp and learn how to color the hair (blonde and brunette) and skin tone. One class is scheduled for Thurs, Sept 16 and a repeat will be Sat, Sept 25. Please call the store for details and registration.

Thanks and have a great day stamping,

More with Watercolor Backgrounds

Lately, I've been hooked on making these watercolor backgrounds. I've even did demos of it at the NJ State Fair this past Sunday. Everyone liked them because they are so easy to make and the shimmer you get from the Twinkling H2O's is really spectacular. (Not sure if you can really see it in the pictures)

I had to make some thank you notes and this is technique is wonderful. It's not too time consuming and each card looks different. I used sayings as well as picture stamps and had fun embellishing them.

As you can see, you can get a lot done in no time!

Thanks for stopping by!

Watercolor Cards

All of us learned so much from Dave Brethauer when he was here teaching classes. I, myself couldn't wait to go home and try the watercolor techniques. It was so relaxing to make the watercolor backgrounds. I haven't used my twinkling H2O's in such a long time, so it felt good to pull them out again. The shimmer in those paints just make those backgrounds gorgeous.

Here are the cards that you can make if you take the watercolor class with me. You'll learn how to make the great backgrounds, learn how to blend the colors, as well as learn how to use your twinkling H2O's and watercolor pencils. Hope this gives you some inspiration for your next project.
