Pre-Orders Close Tonight for Beautiful Brushstrokes...

Hey all, just popping in with a little reminder that the pre-orders close tonight, July 7 at 10pm EDT for the Make It Market: Beautiful Brushstrokes kit.  The kit will not be available for purchase after that time.

I also have a couple more projects for you today using the kit.  I just couldn't resist pulling out those stamps again! 

The flower stamps make it super simple to create watercolor looks.  Here I just rolled the rose images in Summer Sunrise and Hibiscus Burst inks using the rock-n-roll technique and stamped them onto the watercolor paper included in the kit.  The leaves were inked using the same technique with Harvest Gold/Spring Moss inks.  


After everything was stamped, I just took my damp waterbrush and brushed over the stamped images, blending the ink just a bit.  Easy peasy.  I love the watercolor paper in the kit, it lets the inks blend so easily!



 My next card uses the large, open bloom rose from the set.  I stamped it with HIbiscus Burst Ink (stamped off first, then rolled the edges in HIbiscus Burst again).  This time I put them on the stems included in the stamp set. 


I added a bit of watercoloring to the background using my Aqua Mist ink pad.  I just pressed the pad onto a scrap of acetate and picked up the color with a waterbrush. I backed the stamped panel with some patterned papers, then added a strip of washi tape, all included in the kit.
