A week ago today, I was the featured stop during a special event called a Unique Blog Hop. It started when I was invited to join by Debra Miller. She is just so talented and if you missed the chance hop over to visit her blog, Cream City Angels.
During the Unique Blog Hop you got to see a little of what I was working on, and what inspires me! I was playing with my new Peerless Watercolor Paints that A Muse Studio (and other vendors too!) have begun carrying. Well this past week I wondered how they would work if I “painted” a bold stamp image rather than the more traditional way. Here are my results and I love it! I used the new stamp set, Pretty Peonies 2 from A Muse Studio and just added some paint with my water brush. Most of these are first generation prints but the one purplish flower to the top is a second generation stamp. I used the stamp sketch from CAS(e) This Sketch and finished it off by matting the focal image with the new A Muse Studio color, Hibiscus. The sentiment is from the A Muse Studio stamp set, First in My Book.
Today the Unique Blog Hop marches on and I would love to introduce you to two of my crafty friends!
Shirley Hotop is a former Angel like I myself and is a retired nurse. Shirley is as sweet and encouraging as can be. Her blog, Glittered Paws, is full of variety and inspiration and is appropriately named since she has one cat and two dogs! (Sadly Shirley lost one of her cats this past week after 17 years of companionship)
Gail Park (who also goes by mamaxsix where we met on Splitcoaststampers) has recently started her blog and I’d love for you to pay her a visit and leave some love. Gail named her blog, Home Made Memories. She is a pastor’s wife and mother of 6 (three of which she is still homeschooling)!
