I missed the Doodle Garden preview day, and it's been a little too long since I've had a chance to watercolor. These images are just perfect for the technique. I stamped Fluttering By to watercolor paper, added clear embossing powder and then zapped it with my heat gun. I really find that technique so relaxing.... I added just a bit of twinkle to her wings with a Sakura Stardust pen.
I had so much fun watercoloring that I decided to ink up the second cute new Doodle Garden - Party Time. After all, having a stash of birthday cards is always a good idea! I kept this one perfectly mailable, with no bulky embellishments. The new Party Banner Die-namics is beyond cute, I lightly rolled forward the edges of the banners and zig-zag stitched them into place.
Then I decided I was prepared for getting a little messy. I'm a neat freak, so this was admittedly made me a little nervous.... I took a piece of plastic and mixed one of my Tim Holtz markers with a lot of water. I soaked that up with my Waterbrush and flicked it onto my finished panel.
After I was finished with my stamping, I stitched all along the edges, and rolled my edges forward for distressed detail.
If I haven't mentioned the MFT Black Licorice Ink from MFT let me just say "oh my goodness!" This ink has such a beautiful coverage and dries uber quickly. I love it most especially for my sentiment stamping.
Don't forget that ALL the new releases from My Favorite Things are now available. I hope you've found a few things you'd like to add to your collection this month.
