Windy Winnie, from the Sweet 'N Sassy March release, is still on my mind as the weather here changes daily. Yesterday it poured all day and this morning, I woke to 5 inches of snow! Go figure! I could use any of the Winnie sets and still be weather appropriate!
Be Encouraged, from Sweet 'N Sassy stamps, for just this reason!
I also filmed a little tutorial for you.....
The Bokeh effect has been translated into a stamping technique by many. This is just my little take on it. I think the Windy Winnie is perfect for such a technique!--The supplies I used are shown below. I chose distress inks to create my water colored background, but you could use just about any type of water coloring to create your own.
Distress Inks & Water Spritzer
Water Color Paper
Various Circle Punches (or dies) & Scrap Cardstock
Painter's Tape (optional)
White Pigment Ink & Dauber
Black Ink & Black Marker
The Painter's Tape is optional because if you do not wish to create an uninked frame around your piece, you will not need it. I wanted my final product to have the frame, so I started simply by masking a frame around the water color paper.
Now, go walk along side someone and make it a great day! Don't forget to be awesome!
