Paper Smooches Masking

I used EIGHT adorable Paper Smooches stamp sets to create this adorable card and it was worth every minute of time I spent masking and coloring. I'm so pleased with the way this card turned out.  I will update the supplies tomorrow.

Paper Smooches Baby Birds

I'm playing along in the January 2018 Fan Favorite Anything Goes Challenge at Paper Smooches.  :)

I did some really quick watercoloring with Candied Apple and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide inks onto Tim Holtz watercolor paper, then used some watered down Black Soot Distress Oxide to flick the paper with some black dots for some added texture. There was some clean water on the handle of my paintbrush, which also splattered down for a happy accident and "starburst looking" splotches.

I used my Paper Smooches Baby Birds stamps and dies to create the bird and sentiment and adhered the watercolor panel to a piece of Aqua cardstock that I dry embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder.  I love the bright colors and the little bird and sentiment are so, so cute. :) I used C3, C5, and C7 Copic markers for the bird's body and BG13, BG15, and BG18 for the hair. I think I used Y35 and Y37 for the beak. I finished off the hair with Spectrum Noir clear glitter brush pen and Glossy Accents for the beak. Foam tape pops up the watercolor panel and I used the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher for some detail on the sentiment strip.

SSS Flickr Challenge #88 Watercoloring

Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge--Watercolor

Instagram: @amypeach1978

I cut the SSS Stacked Hearts die out of masking paper, then stuck it onto watercolor paper and watercolored with my Gansai Tambi watercolors right over the mask. I splattered with white gold Gansai Tambi watercolors after using the purple and blues. When it was dry, I took off the mask and offset it a little before running it back through my die cut machine to press it down securely

I sat down today and played with a few Hero Arts products.  My Wink of Stella made a little bit of a concentrated area near the house, but I think it looks a little like a plume of smoke coming from the chimney, so I'm going with that and not stressing too much about it lol.
