Love You Lots card detail by Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper #stampinup
hoppin' off the card
  • First, there are actually 3 frogs not 1-layered using Stampin' Dimensionals to give him some "lift"
  • Secondly, I used a technique that I'm calling the "Spritz & Swish" on the top 2 layers before I snipped and layered them.

"Spritz & Swish"-you're probably wondering if I've lost my ever lovin' pea pickin' mind!

I haven't. But I do love this technique.

  • Simply "spritz" your watercolor paper with water-making sure it is relatively moist.
  • "Swish" on some ink using your Aqua Painter.
  • And then "spritz" a little more water on.
  • Let dry completely
  • Stamp your image and proceed
  • Enjoy you one of a kind masterpiece!

I love this technique for lots of reasons but mostly because it is fun!

No 2 pieces will turn out the same-kinda like us, we are each unique and beautiful.

DOstamperSTARS Challenge #180: Moroccan Nights

Hello Friends,

The Thursday Challenge this week is a color challenge-not always the colors that I would choose or put together but I love the challenge.  

 

DSC#180 DOStamperSTARS Thursday Color My World Challenge, #crackedpotstamper, #stampinup

 

This is the project that I came up with. It is so so so NOT my usual style but I think either my style is changing or I am learning to branch out of my comfort zone.

In either case, I view it as a win-win!

WooHoo for me and you!!

  • On the banner-I stamped the large image from Moroccan Nights in Versamark to create a subtle background-it's difficult to see in the photo--but trust me it is there :o) I also lightly sponged the edges in Early Espresso ink-again to add a little dimension.
