Watercolor Forest


Life in the Forest-1


I fell in love with this “Life in the Forest” stamp set at Leadership last month.  I saw so many cute cards made with these little critters while in Houston that I just had to have it for myself!  

I paired this set with another thing shown at Leadership – the watercolored background.  I tell you – Leadership was the place to be last month!!!  Stampin’Up!  Rocked. It.  Out!

To create the background for yourself, color with markers on an acrylic block back and forth about 5 swipes for each color.  Then spritz the block with a water bottle or spritzer about 3 times.  Stamp on cardstock and hold in place for 5 seconds.  The cardstock will be wet at first and look streaky but just wait – it will look awesome when it dries – trust me!!!

Ink & Paper – Confetti White, Pear Pizzazz,  Pool Party, Stazon black, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate
