Happy Friday to you! I hope you have some exciting things planned for the weekend. Me? Crafting, cooking, reading. My typical weekend.
We are so excited about this month’s sponsor. Right at Home has such lovely stamps, and this was the first time I got to play with them. I am happy to report that they stamp wonderfully, and are amazing. Go, buy them all. This month’s challenge theme is “New to Me“, which was made easy for me since these stamps were new to me. And I used some new products as well.
I used the large cup/mug image from Cup of Joy and stamped a repeated pattern on some watercolor paper. Then I used two small circle stamps from the same set to fill in some areas of the background.
I colored the mugs very loosely with watercolor, and then used my “new to me” Finetec watercolors to add the gold to the circles. Wow. Do you own these paints? They’re mesmerizing. The coverage is amazing. I wanted to paint everything with them. Decided to save that for another project though, you’re welcome. 🙂
Colored in the background just a bit with some pale blue inks, and then white heat embossed the sentiment on some black card stock, just to keep it simple, and also added some sequins. I am trying so hard to be a sequin gal. I love them, when other people use them. I seem to be sequin challenged. Practice makes better, I hope.
I do hope you’ll join us on this challenge. I’m sure you’ve got something in your stash that needs to get used, justify its existence, if you will. And you could win a prize from Right at Home!
