Happy For You! PPA248





Last Saturday I attended a gathering of stampers in central NY.  It was terrific meeting so many people that I have "chatted" with on Splitcoast. These gals were wonderful and kept me on track as I participated in a shoebox swap for the first time ever! Yep I was a total rookie! I learned new techniques, tried new products and marveled at the talent in that room as I worked my way through 25 boxes.  I  used one of those techniques on the star today. I swiped three colors of ink across a clear block, spritzed it with water and pressed down a piece of watercolor paper.  After it dried I used a star framelit to cut out the star. Simple and sweet............just like Kerry's sketch today at Pals Paper Arts.....




Such an amazing talented group of ladies!

How fun...the card and the shoebox swap. I did one last year with 16 stations and what a job that was! It is quite a task, huh? Love the watercolor washed star!

I love the colors on the star! Sounds like you had a great time. Hopefully you will be sharing more of the techniques that you learned!!

I love how that star turned out. And I'm not even going to ask how you did the sentiment that way and got it perfectly lined up. That's the sort of thing that would take me hours to do!
