Clean Edged Watercolor

Hello! This week, I have chosen Lydia's Clean Edge Masking tutorial for Watercolor Wednesday at SCS.  This is such a quick and fun watercolor project!  I can imagine sitting and just creating a bunch of note cards in an afternoon!  The sentiment is from a collection of More Basic Greetings.  


I couldn't stop with just one card!  Next, I used the Clean Edge technique, but this time I went with a horizontal border.  Before the paint was completely dry, I used a rag and dabbed a few places for a fun textured look.  Then using stamps, I created a whimsical take on the Whale & Boat art.  Lucky for me the Take Me To The Sea stamp set also has a Die Set!  I stamped the boat and watercolored it directly on the paper but I didn't like the colors I chose so I simply stamped another boat, watercolored it in red and die cut it! 



We would love for you to join us for this week's Free Watercolor Wednesday Challenge at SCS!

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look!

Shine Bright with the Impression Obsession June Kit

**Affiliate links are used when possible at no charge to you.  Thanks so much for your support!**

Hello!  This week we are taking another look at the beautiful Impression Obsession June Red Rubber Cling  Kit.  Also, new for June is a beautiful paper pack, By the Sea.  I love paper of all kinds so I couldn't wait to use it!  I also used the Rectangle 6 in 1 Frame Die.  It's one die that cuts out 6 frames.  I keep all the extra unused frames in a bag so this one was previously cut and waiting for me!

Welcome to the Impression Obsession June Release Hop Day 2!

Enjoy every moment with this beautiful Beach Chair set!  I framed the image with the Rectangle 6 in 1 Frames Die set. Then stamped the umbrella a second time and paper pieced it over the framing.  


An ocean breeze sets the mind at ease!  For this card, I left the beautiful Enjoying the View image in black & white and created an ocean scene with Distress Inks.  I sure would love to be where she is right now!  :)

Love & Light for the Impression Obsession June Kit Hop & Giveaway

***Affiliate links used when possible at no extra charge to you!  Thanks for your support! ***

Welcome to the June Limited Release Rubber Kit Hop!

I had such a great time with the summery, June Kit!  This kit works beautifully for masculine cards, nautical fans, and lighthouse enthusiasts!  

I created a "wooden" background for the compass rose with the Wood Planks Die set and then cut out my wooden decor with a die from the Deckled Frame set.  Then I heat embossed the compass rose image on the "wooden plank" background.  

The Limited Edition Kits are sold HERE.


Lately, I have been favoring Distress Inked backgrounds and I love how the bright sky looks with the lighthouse details in shadow.    


Hop Details!
