Use Your Stash Blog Hop – Water(color) Fun

For this month’s Use Your Stash Blog Hop, you will see lots of coloring using a variety of mediums from watercolors and colored pencils to markers and more.  This hop is a circle; if you have just started simply continue until you make your way back here; if you have already started, you should be coming from Nicole Schuette.

Colored pencils:

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart unless otherwise noted: Exotic Flower Stamp Set (Hostess set), Opaque Pearls (retired), colored pencils (retired but the Watercolor Pencils would be a good substitute), Shinhan Markers, and Momento Ink.

This is one of my favorite new stamp sets so I’m probably not using up my stash much but it has been a very long time since I’ve gotten out my colored pencils.   I like the muted colors of the colored pencils just as much as the vibrant look that I get when using markers.  There are lots of options with this stamp set.  You can color it with different mediums and a variety of colors that will always turn out differently.  You can also use the whole stamp set or cut out the the middle flower and just use that.  You can embellish it with pearls, sparkles, glitter glue, etc or leave it plain and flat and it’s still beautiful!

Now hop on over to Priscilla Gotham!

CTMH Technique Blog Hop – Call For Back Up

Welcome to this month’s CTMH Technique Blog Hop.  If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Sheila Bennett.

IMG_6816 Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Cardstock (White Daisy, Lagoon, Gypsy), Piece of Cake stamp set, The Party is On stamp set, Teal Shimmer Trim, Chevron Border Punch, ShinHan Markers (Turquoise Blue, Peacock Green, Lavender, Golden Yellow, and Tender Pink), and Memento Ink.

I used the border punch as an accent on this card and then backed it with shimmer trim on the inside of the card.  The Shimmer Trim not only shows through the front of the card to add more color but it is also an accent on the inside of the card when you open it.
