White Wash with the Color Your Seasons Bundle

Hello and Happy Tuesday! I hope you are all off to an amazing week. It's been a busy one so far for me, that's for sure. My full-time work sure does take up a lot of my time so, I have to sneak in crafty episodes wherever I can.

Tomorrow the limited edition bundle, Color Your Seasons goes live for customers. I just LOVE this bundle and you will too. The dies provide stitching on the inside and outside, so your die cut piece has stitching and so does the negative so you can use that as a decorative piece too! And this stamp set, the images are just stunning! I love them, but most especially this gorgeous floral. If anyone happens to know what flower this is, I would love to know, so please comment below what you believe this flower to be because, I think my garden really needs this added to it!

Anyhoo, I did play with this image after I completed my demonstrator swaps,(I will share once all the swaps are returned in the next few days) and I decided to do a white wash. I started with a panel of Basic Black that I prepped with my Embossing Buddy and stamped with my Versamark ink. I heat embossed the image with Whisper White embossing powder and then to color the image in, I used a watercolor paintbrush and the Whisper White Craft Ink re-inker. I carefully painted in each petal, the leaves and stems, being careful to remain inside the embossed lines. I allowed the image to dry, and then I ran it through the Big Shot with the largest of the layering stitched shapes from the Stitched Seasons Framelits collection. I added this to a Lovely Lipstick card base using Stampin' Dimensionals. I then stamped the sentiment onto a scrap piece of Whisper White that I hand trimmed with my paper snips and added to the front with another Dimensional. As I continue to look at it, the more I think I need to add a little bling with a few Basic Rhinestones? What do you think? But, overall, I'm pretty happy with it.

Stay tuned, as tomorrow this bundle will be available along with a special limited edition release of some brand new watercolor pencils (although I didn't use them in this project, I included the link for them below)! These will be while supplies last so don't wait, they will not last long!

Happy Stamping,
