ANYway, I used this Santa stamp...remember when I made a card with him before and how I received the image in a swap but I had NO idea where he came from? Well, Allison and Jan and a whole bunch of other folks worked and worked 'til they found who made it and I found one on ebay...of course, it had to come live with me! hehe!
And on the High Hopes blog, their challenge this week is to use buttons and brads on your card...so, I did! hehe!
So, I did a little something different with this watercoloring. So...you know those glittery watercolors that everyone (including me...LOL!) has? Well, I didn't watercolor this with those. HAHA! No, I used just my ink pads (smooshed onto an acrylic block) and some reinkers and then to put a little shimmer in my paint, I dipped the end of my paintbrush into a pot of Shimmerz paints, mixed a little water with my ink and Shimmerz paints and voila! instant shimmery watercolors! You can see it a little better in this second photo. Neato, huh? Just added enough shimmery-ness but not over the top with the Shimmerz.
Hey, I'm just trying to stretch out the dollars in case you have watercolors and a pot of Shimmerz! Now you can have Shimmery watercolors to match all your SU stuff. :D
What I used: Watercolor paper, Staz-On (stinkz-on) jet black, reinkers, ink pads, Shimmerz Paints, paint brushes, H2O (hehe), SU CS, Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Making Memories PP, Making Memories brad, some buttons from my endless button jars, and a ribbon!
Thanks for stopping in today! :)
