STAMPlorations products Gwendolyn used:

I did a no-line watercolouring on the hummingbird in a loose way to try and create movement especially in the wings.


To create a translucent look to the clear paste, I added just a drop of different alcohol ink before brushing it through the Happy Flowers stencil.


I used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator alcohol markers on the image...

...to create an autumn harvest scene.



STAMPlorations products Renee used:

Colouring with Copics on the stamp.

Copic Markers and a bit of embossing thrown in makes for a wonderful blend.


First layer of painting with distressed inks.

The circles now look 3D and words from the stamp set "Imagine" have been added.


Rainbow colouring against white embossing with the stamp.

A bit of colour in the background further enhances the white embossed rainbow coloured image.

Such a bright card with a bit of glittery vellum sentiment added in.



STAMPlorations products Vinita used:

Watercolored with Zig clean clear real brushes...

and created a bright sunshine card.


Dry embossed with Merry Go Round stencil and watercoloring the raised area using Faber Castell watercolor pencils.

Pink winter fun with glittered deer!


Heat embossed the butterfly in metallic silver EP and colored with Polychromos.

Butterfly card with dimension, partial die cutting and shaker fun!


Gorgeous projects, aren't they? If you enjoyed and were inspired by today's post, come visit again on November 14 because Gwendolyn, Renee, and Vinita will be back for another color-filled post!
