Watercoloring and Best Thoughts

The Best Thoughts stamp set is new to me and I am loving getting back to watercoloring with reinkers and an aquapainter.  I'm looking forward to watercoloring this in all sorts of colors!  Oh, and trying to use up some old designer paper.

I used the sentiment from the Best Thoughts stamp set for this card as well.  This image is a digital image that I colored using prismacolor pencils, but don't recall the company.  I removed it from a card that got all tattered in my craft room and created a new card with it.

This last card is using the Bloom With Hope stamp set that my friend forgot at my house!  I'm having a great time with my Spectrum Noir markers - and am getting better at blending each time I use them.  The sentiment is from the One Big Meaning stamp set.

Oh - and I used more old designer paper!

My New Favorite Stamp Set!

I have wanted this stamp set for a very long time, and finally ordered it! It is so versatile! The possibilities with this set are endless!

Stampin' UP! Blushing Bride makes a great spring card and I discovered this washi tape on my stamping table and was SO surprised that it matched so perfectly. 

I think my new favorite color just might be Lost Lagoon!  It also makes a great card with this stamp set and I really like the Lost Lagoon washi tape! 

The last card is also made with Blushing Bride, but I added just a touch of sunshine in the upper left corner.  These two cards using Blushing Bride look exactly like spring in Washington State!

Wow, this is one neglected blog! I took a break from blogging, but not from making cards. I'm hoping to get back in the habit of posting the cards that I make - and getting back into the groove of Stampin'Up! and being a demo. My new favorite stamp set is Sheltering Tree! I need to take some pictures and I'll upload them later.
