Good morning!  Before I hit the road this morning, I wanted to share an SU! card with you.  I know, I can hear some of you now . . . an SU! card?  Well, I am still a demonstrator and do have a Stamp Club, but I rarely use SU! unless it’s for Stamp Club.  One reason is that I haven’t bought much from the last few catalogues.  When I saw the Level 2 Hostess Set, Kind and Caring Thoughts, I NEEDED it!  It’s floral and a silhouette . . . oh my badness!

Anyhoo, here’s my first sample with the set.

Kittie's BDay Card

One of my favorite techniques to use with floral silhouettes, is to stamp on damp watercolor paper.  I mist my watercolor paper thoroughly and let it sit until just slightly damp.  My image has been colored with markers, and when the paper is ready I mist the image with water and then stamp onto the damp paper.  If the ink hasn’t bled enough to give the effect you’re after, you can always mist it with water and then dry with a heat tool to keep it from bleeding further.  This is what I did with the gingko leaves in the background.  By the time I got around to stamping the red flowers, the paper was already dry so the only water effecting this ink is that which is misted on the stamp.
