This month, and next, I decided to play around with some stamps and create a few simple cards that you could send to your friends. At the beginning of 2013, I bought watercolor postcards that I've been using to create art and send to friends. I grabbed one of my cards and the Cut & Paste Flair stamp set and stamped down the frame:
and then I used the curly stamp from the Collectible - Remarkable (Beautiful) set to add curls all around the frame.
I then used my watercolor markers to add color to all the sections created by the curly stamp.
Once I was done, it looked like this:
I then used a few of the stamp sets (Collectible - beautiful & hello, Follow Your Heart - Be Happy) to create a little title in the frame:
Once I colored the frame, I was done. I then decided to have fun experimenting with different frames. Here's one that's loose and uneven:
I decided I wanted it stronger, darker and starker so I just added a lot of black paint to the edges and ended up with this:
Which makes the watercolors that much more striking.
That's it for this month, see you in December!!
