Dies, Paperartsy Hot Picks, Papermania stamps, Use them or Lose them, Watercolor wash

Use them or lose them #18

So this year I have decided to challenge myself to make a set of cards, scrapbook page or journal layout using each of my stamp sets as I know I have some I rarely use!

Can’t believe we are already at week 18 in the year.  This week I grabbed Watercolor Wash as I had it on the desk already.  I use it to add a bit of fun to envelopes quite often and so it was out and about so I decided to use it for this challenge and see how I got on doing something a bit different.

I started with stamping a couple of pieces of white cardstock with the watercolour wash using Soft Sky ink.  Then I added some Hot Picks stamps with Lost Lagoon and Island Indigo.

I then took some Bermuda Bay ink and gave the fish a little definition

I then chose two different ways to finish the cards. ..

A die cut and some copper acrylic ink to make a fathers day card.

A stamped postcard and a die cut sentiment teamed with some flicks of the copper acrylic ink some trim and a fun clip. I also added some of the watercolour wash to the postcard using Sahara Sand.

Love both of these and definitely can’t see me getting rid of this background stamp.

Finished the envelopes too…

Such an easy way to decorate a envelope.

Happy crafting!
