Happy Smiles


Happy Smiles. That's what I am doing today.
I am the GD over at the Craft Stamper blog where the challenge this month is:

I got out my watercolour crayons for this one.  First, I wet my flower stamp from Unity with water and a paint brush.  You could just mist it with a spray but I wanted to be sure it was saturated with water.
I then coloured directly onto the stamp with 2 shades of blue, sprayed with water and stamped.  I sprayed with water to give a more blended, watercolour look to the flowers.
 When that was dry, I inked the edges of my card using Salty Ocean Distress ink.
I stamped the sentiment from Kaisercraft with black Memento ink and done.

I am also adding my card to these challenges:

 Little Red Wagon- DISTRESS INK

Simon Says- LET'S GET SENTIMENTAL

Crafty Creations- PHOTO INSPIRATION

The Sisterhood of Crafters- MONOCHROMATIC

Cardz for Guys- GARDENING


Thanks so much for coming by to take a look.
Hope you get a chance to play along with the Take a Stamp challenge.

Supplies:  stamps- Unity, Kaisercraft/ Distress ink/ Memento ink/ watercolour crayons/ mini mister/ inking tool
