3 Birds with 1 Stone feat Better With You Stamp Set

Better with You stamp set from Stampin' UP! for #GDP144 challenge Wendy Cranford luvinstampin.com

Hey friends!

Happy Thursday.  I am excited to share today’s card because it has a lot of different purposes.

Are you ready!?

  1. I enjoy participating in Global Design Project challenges and this card fulfills the requirements for this weeks challenge GDP144 CLICK HERE to see it.
  2. I also enjoy participating in my team challenges.  So I am excited to say, this card fulfills that challenge because of the colors I used.
  3. I wanted to watercolor a bird! lol…. So I scratched that itch.

All in all I would say it was a successful crafty session.  See a couple of tips below.

  • + You don’t have to have fancy watercolors to watercolor well.  But good paper helps.  That’s why I choose to use Arches Cold Press Watercolor paper.  You can purchase it HERE.  (I know it’s not Stampin’ UP! but I always tell the truth and the truth is, Arches is a better watercolor paper)
  • + Squeeze your ink pads together to put some ink in the flat lid area of the ink pad.  This will give you a pool of ink to dip into.
  • + Start dark.  When the most ink is on your brush start in the areas that would be shaded.  Then dab your brush off on a paper towel as you move to the lighter areas for less pigment.
