November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  


Remember this is a circular hop, so if you get lost along the way, you can always go back to Melinda's blog here.   Each month our group of consultants keeps growing and you will find over 60 creative designs for this stamp set.  If you have been hopping along then you have arrived from Wendy's blog here.


This month's stamp set is "It's the Little Things" - a stamp set perfect for making thank you cards and favors.






When I first looked at this stamp set, I thought - there is NO way that I am cutting out all of these little pieces!  So I decided to play around with stamping the images.  I found a card I made several years ago using the "doodling' technique and I "googled' doodling and boy did I get an updated 21st century version!

I flipped through the Annual Inspirations and I found inspiration in the Brushed Floral paper.  If you have been following my blog lately, then you know that this is quite the opposite of colors that I have been using!



I am really pleased with how this card turned out.  I decided to name my technique  "Brushed Watercolors".  It may not be new but it is NEW to me!


Here are the steps that I did to create the look of the background paper in the card. (sorry - videos are not my expertise!)

Step #1


Step #2


Step #3


Step #4 


Don't forget to add the accents to your smaller flower as well.

Step #5


Step #6


Step #7


Supplies:
Cardstock - White daisy, Pixie
Brushed B & T paper
Inks- Canary, Cotton Candy (I don't have Pixie yet) and Juniper 
Waterbrush- retired

I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial and give this technique a try! Now it is off to Melinda's blog here
