Who are the ‘Blogging Friends’? Almost two years ago, I rounded up a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators located all across the U.S. and Canada who had never met before. Well, actually, we still haven’t met yet (in person). . . But, through our common bond of Stampin’ Up! and a shared love of papercrafting we have created a fun blog hop. Please join us on the 1st of every month to see what wonderful things we have created!
In case you’ve never ‘done’ a blog hop before, it’s really easy! At the bottom of this post, you’ll see a "next" image and when you click on it, you’ll be taken directly to the next participant in the hop. Keep clicking on that image at the bottom of each blog post, and you’ll hop through all of the participating blogs, back to where you started – and you’ll see all of the amazing projects created for your inspiration! You won't want to miss a stop, I promise!
THIS MONTH'S THEME: WATERCOLOR
The theme of our hop this month is "watercolor." I tried a new-to-me technique, simply by spritzing water onto an already inked up stamp! Very easy, but a beautiful watercolor effect. I combined this look with the Lift Me Up hot air balloon stamp set and dies.
Here is the simple technique I used to achieve this watercolored background look:
I tried a few different papers, but ultimately I liked this watercolor effect better on regular Whisper White cardstock than watercolor paper, but it's entirely up to you!
