Stamp Review Crew: Varied Vases






The Stamp Review Crew is featuring Varied Vases this week. It is an amazing set with endless possibilities.  It is also the Million Dollar Sales Set designed by my upline Mary Fish who is pretty amazing herself!

I love the sweet simplicity of the images in this set.  I scribbled acrylic blocks with Mint Macaron and Mango Melody markers, spritzed the blocks with water and stamped the blocks onto watercolor paper.  A paper towel easily blots up any puddles you want gone!  Then I just stamped my images in black right over the watercolored areas.  It is easy to do but there are variables because of the watercolor.....and operator error!  I dropped the blocks twice and splattered ink all over instead of stamping ink.  So my final helpful hint is - don't talk on your cell phone while handling markers and spritzing water on slippery clear blocks!  

If you missed Stesha's fabulous work head on back......




Otherwise head onward to my oh so talented friend Mike Funke's blog!




I used the sketch at Cas(e) this Sketch for my layout.
