Soak up some Sun
Recently I have enjoyed working with water color paints

I placed my mask chair/umbrella on the oval then watercolored the background.
Then using my MISTI I lined up my stamp to the masked area and then stamped
the image. I then decided to stamp and color the chair image
again and cut it out so it would add more dimension.
I colored the chair and umbrella with
Distress Inks and a water brush, then pop dotted it on top.

added some K&Company die cuts.
The stamps are from Sweet & Sassy stamps. I had been wanting to
use these stamps for a long time and finally had an opportunity to
Thanks for stopping to take a peak.
