Welcome to this month’s Fancy Friday Blog Hop! Our team is a group of stampers who love to make beautiful things. Sometimes they are clean, sometimes they are layered but the one thing I can say for sure is that our projects will be fancy! If you hopped over from one of my crafty heroes Cathy Caines, welcome to the next stop. For April, we are focusing on the gorgeous artwork and images in the stamp sets. Sometimes pictures speak louder without words!I chose this gorgeous flower image from the Butterfly Basic stamp set as my focal point. I thought it would be fun to try coloring it using the no-line watercolor technique. I’m still working on this but I am pretty happy with the end result here. One of the best parts of stamping is that there is always something new to learn!! After I colored the flowers, I added a few pretty little details. First some lace trim (this one is retired but SU always has the most amazing ribbons and trims) and then I added some Linen Thread. The base is Crumb Cake, one of my favorite neutrals. I added some Basic Pearls too, because, well, I love them!
Now on to the rest of the hop! These talented stampers are going to inspire you for sure! Next up is the lovely Sue Plote.

Can you explain the no-line watercolor technique? Please?
This is beautiful, Jennifer! Gorgeous image and fabulous layout and embellishments.
Oh how lovely! Such softness and so very dreamy! I love this!
Jen, this is gorgeous, and I love your no-line coloring of this image! I’ve not been overly impressed with a lot of SU images lately, but this sure makes me look twice at some of them now. Hehe! Beautifully done, sweet friend! Hugs!
So much delicacy in this card, Jen! You did an amazing coloring job!
