Life is Sweet.....

Happy Monday! It's back to schedules, work and routine after a great and relaxing weekend of doing whatever the moment held!  I love weekends like that....they make life sweet--don't you think?

Every so often, I like to drag out a little used product and goof around with it.  Lately, my water color crayons have been on my mind.  I haven't used them in years.  I've been doing a lot of water coloring with ink and thought maybe I'd try something new for a bit. 

I chose  Floral Silhouette Bouquet, from I Brake For Stamps, for my first card.  After coloring with various crayons directly onto the stamp surface, I lightly misted with water and stamped on smooth card stock.  When it was completely dry, I outlined the entire image with an ultra fine black marker, Pigma Micron 005, to be specific.  It's an interesting look--the outcome is hugely dependent on the image and a steady hand!  I'll have to keep at it :)

My second card, includes a similar technique to create the background.  For this one, I used the diamond background stamp from Typewriter/Diamonds Half Sheet.  I finished the card off with a sentiment from the Binoculars and Golf Ball Half Sheet. Both sheets can be found in the I Brake For Stamps store.  You can save by using my coupon code--SAVE10JANE

What goodies do you have tucked away that need to come out and play??

Drag them out and be awesome!  Jane
