Flights of Fancy…Cards

This Martha Stewart stamp was on sale last spring so I snapped it up. I made a few cards with it but, I wasn’t thrilled with them. So I shelved the stamp and I hadn’t played around with it for a long time. But I recently thought about trying the stamp out again with watercolor paints. The watercolor paints made all the difference for me. I think the second batch has better coloring and I like the way I mounted them better too.

Here are the cards from my first go around. These were colored with colored pencils and blended with Gamsol.

For the next set of cards I used Aquarelle hot pressed watercolor paper and an ancient watercolor paint set my dad gave to me. (I think it was the one he used in college) I also used the Spellbinders Nestabilities: Reverse Wonky Rectangle  dies and Lifestyles Crafts: Nested Rounded Squares that I got for Christmas. The Lifestyles Crafts brand was way cheaper than the Spellbinders version and it included more die cuts too! Two thumbs up on these from me.
