A Perfect Stamp for Your Watercolors & Give Away!

This month we a have beautiful Stamp of the Month. It goes perfect with the colors from the Kaleidoscope Paper Pack. The colors are so bright and cheery! The images in this month's stamp are perfect for your water colors. You can see in both of these cards I used my CTMH water color set to paint the images.
In addition on the top card I used the yellows and oranges to make some candle flames. I did this free hand and it really is very simple. To make your own flames:
1. Pick 2 colors the blend well together.
2. Paint the light color first in longer strokes.
3. Add the darker color over the top of the lighter color with shorter stokes at the bottom.
*using a dryer paint consistency will work best for this.

It's time for a Give Away!

I haven't had a chance to use mine very much, but using the watercolors on flowers seem to be a terrific way to use them. I also like splattering the watercolors.
