The challenge this week at the Sweet Stamps Blog is Watercolor. I love to use their stamps on vellum, but they also are amazing with watercolors. I used their stamp, Pansy Layers Frame (474), and heat embossed it in white on watercolor paper. I lightly spritzed it with water and painted it with purple and yellow watercolors. I added some light coloring around the frame to bring out the image more. The pansy borders are created with a Martha Stewart border punch.
Tonight is short and sweet since I plan to head to bed early. Starting back to work and getting up really early is a big adjustment for me and with a class of 30 little five year olds I come home pretty tired. They are a very sweet class!!
