I am so excited to share with you this month’s project with for our Fancy Friday monthly hop! If you just came over from the amazing Jeanna, welcome to the next stop. My friends and I want to be able to share with you our ideas in a monthly format. We will use different themes each month – sometimes colors, sometimes a sketch, sometimes a stamp set focus. The one thing you can count on is that it will be fancy! Over our year on the 2013 Artisan Design Team, “fancy” became our word to describe the best projects, the best new clothes, even the best pedicure colors. Now we want to share with you our take on “fancy” each month. This month our theme is “New Products”. With all that the new Stampin’ Up catalog has to offer, the hardest part of the challenge was choosing what to use!
I loved the Awesomely Artistic stamp set the minute I saw it and it was on my first order. These little flowers are so fantastic to color! And guess what I found out?! You can use the new Thick Whisper White for watercoloring! I didn’t do a whole lot of blending but it held up to my Aquapainter with no pilling at all. Yippee!!!! I stamped the image with Stazon Black and colored the flower with Rose Red, Tip Top Taupe and Soft Sky. Pretty quick to color and so fancy! I added the sentiment from the set and some new black sequins from the Metallics Sequins Assortment. The side bar is retired washi tape. There are some new ones (Everyday Chic comes to mind) that would work here too.
I’m so glad you stopped in to visit today. I hope you have a great time seeing all the beautiful things on our hop.
My oh so talented friend Becky Cowley is up next! Wait until you see the fancy watercolor card she created!
