Ah, Spring! The time of year when “Let it Snow” turns to “Let it Melt”! The theme for the PPA challenge this week is spring or anything that makes you think “spring”. I chose to use the spring stamp from the A Flower for All Seasons stamp set. During Sale-A-Bration; you could earn this set for FREE with any order of $50 or more!
DO IT YOURSELF TIPS!
· The Perfect Plum mat was easy to make using my 1 3/4” Circle punch and one of my favorites; the Ticket Corner punch. I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it some lift.
· I water colored my image on watercolor paper. I love the texture of it and it doesn’t “pill” as easily as regular card stock does.
· To give the colors more depth I placed a drop of each color from my re-inks on a small dish and then I used a Blender pen as my paint brush. Doing it this way makes it so easy to control the amount of color!
