HSS 114

Hi stampers!   It's Tuesday and time for another challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments!  This week is a technique challenge that I'd never tried!  I was pleased to find out it was really quite easy!  I'm a lazy stamper...I don't like to do a bunch of work (which is probably why there is a pile of laundry to do and my stamp room is a disaster, lol). :-)

Now, be nice to me...I didn't have any colored pencils and I didn't want to buy any just for this card so I tried to use what I had and work with my water color wonder crayons.  It sort of worked....I think:-)  Now, coloring with those suckers was not real easy and they aren't very precise...so don't look TOO hard at my coloring.  I had fun with my white gel pen though:-)
Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Fresh vintage (SAB - now retired), loving thoughts
Ink:  Basic black, white craft
Paper:  Basic black, melon mambo, old olive
Accessories:  Watercolor wonder crayons, white gel pen, basic rhinestones, daffodil delight seam binding, labels collection framelits, vintage wall paper embossing folder

I went with BRIGHT colors to contrast with the black and white.  And I used old olive instead of my new fave lucky limeade!  My friend old olive was very happy:-)

Now head on over the to challenge site and see what the awesome design team has come up with!  And don't forget to play along!

Happy stamping!
