Summer Fun with Your Next Stamp!!

Hello everyone!!  Its Feature Week on the YNS blog this week and the theme is Summer Fun!!  I LOVE the summer!!  It is the best time of the year for me.  The weather is fantastic and I get to stay outside and grill!!  Perfect for me!!

This week the Design Team has been challenged to create a project that is all about summer fun.  I wanted to used the Zero Calories stamp but wasn’t sure what to do.  As I was sitting at my desk, a new youtube video popped up in my cue and it was Nichol sharing how she created a watercolor card using a set of popsicles.  I couldn’t believe it.   I watched it and said yes, she gave me an idea.

Take a look:

Happy Hugs (YNS)

Inside of creating a card, I decided to create a postcard that could go right in the mail.  I too decided to watercolor my popsicles. I used Tombow Dual Brush Markers Primary and Brights to watercolor.  I’ve never used them in this way before so this was fun.

I simple stamped the images with Versamark ink and covered them with Clearsnap Colorbox® white embossing powder.

Then I heat set it.

After that was set, I used Tombow’s Dual Brush Markers to watercolor the popsicles.

Then I let the postcard air dried before attaching the happy die cut.  I adhered that die cut with liquid glue.

Then I realized I didn’t watercolor the sticks, so I went back in and watercolored around the die cut.

I added the gumdrops and that was that.

This postcard is on it way to a friend.  I hope she likes it.

What do you think? Would you give this technique a try? I would love to hear from you below.
