Getting Spring-y with Art Impressions

I love the Art Impressions (AI) watercolor line of stamps. It is so easy to create a unique, gorgeous watercolor painting in just minutes with these stamps. I've met Kendra (HI!!) several times over the last few years at various Scrapbooking Expo's and she is one of the most kind and fun people I know. My BFF Judy and I look forward to each Expo just so we can catch up with her.

At the most recent Expo in Pleasanton, I attend the AI watercoloring class again, and learned some great new techniques. One of which was how to get multiple colors to show through on images so they have a more metallic look to them. For instance, the wheelbarrow below was first inked with Marvy LePlume marker # 86 (African Violet), stamped off, then inked with #45 Sepia. The results are quite fun to play with.


AI has a bi-monthly card contest, so since I was already playing with my stamps I figured I'd take the next step and actually post a card to my blog. So here it is, my spring-y card! And if you love that adorable kitten, there's a new set that has 5 adorable kittens to play with (don't worry, you'll see plenty more here!!)

Happy Stamping!
