A Springtime Hello

Hello! I  have been playing with watercolors a LOT lately and I am SO loving it! I got this great French 50's Cafe stamp set from Crafter's Companion awhile ago knowing it would be absolutely BRILLIANT with the watercolor look! I love it! LOVE!


I stamped the image with VersaFine Smokey Grey ink, gave it a  minute or two, then I watercolored the image and the areas around the image. The sentiment is a gold rub-on from Pebbles, Inc. (I used a rub-on successfully. Let's just take a moment to appreciate this very special moment in time. Because dude, that never happens. Never. It's a miracle, I assure you.)

Hello (detail)

My watercolor set is a super handy one, too! It's the Sakura Field Set and I particularly love that it is small enough to travel, but has a ton of colors. It also has a handy handle on it so you can use it standing up or in a field or wherever inspiration may strike! The waterbrush comes with it, too! LOVE IT!

For more awesome Crafter's Companion inspiration, be sure to visit the Crafter's Companion USA Facebook page! They do a TON of giveaways, over there, too! Be sure to like and comment so you continue to see the inspiration and opportunities to win!
