Color Me Monday...

Welcome to my Monday-I Brake For Stamps share!  Today, I have a colorful thank you card to share.  I've had this particular sheet of stamps for's a sheet full of vintage and kitchy images.  You can see it here, in the I Brake For Stamps Store.  See what I mean?  Kitchy....paintbrushes, mustaches, body builders, Chatty Cathy....It's such a great sheet with amazing random images. 

I have to admit, though, the paint brushes had me stumped for a bit.....somewhere, recently, I saw a project that was colorful and inspiring--it stuck with me :) 

I began with some watercolor paper, archival black ink, and a bunch of distress inks.  After stamping the brush image multiple times, I added blocks of distress ink color with my aqua brush.  I always forget how much fun water coloring is.   I like the look of it and really should spend more time with this coloring medium.  I've been stuck in the marker box (because I just adore my alcohol ink markers!) for quite year, new me?   LOL!!

I added the sentiment and then a few sequins--yes, they are my new obsession!  I'll let you in on a little secret......I smudged some ink in the flourish of the "T"---the sequin is just hiding my oops!  I'm a survivor and a true believer in reinventing my mistakes.  It works in ALL areas of my life ;)

Make sure to stop over and say "Hi Dee Ho" to my sweet friend, Bo Bella, over at I Brake For Stamps headquarters!  You can save a cool 10%  at checkout with my coupon code, SAVE10JANE--have fun!
