Welcome to Week Two of 2019! As I hop around the blogs I've been reading of resolutions. Have you made any? I always start out with good intentions regarding stamping, but you know what they say about resolutions -- they're made to be broken. Come what may, I do plan, as always, to make my way through the not-yet-used supplies, so I've watercolored one of my Christmas presents today: Whimsy Stamps Stained Glass Sunflower.
It's a beautiful thing that makes the whole card, so I simply mounted it on white and added a skinny sentiment. The image was stamped with Versamark ink and embossed in black. Painted with Twinkling H2Os and just enough shading in certain areas to avoid a flat look to the overall image.
It twinkles so prettily in the sunlight, but sunlight was nowhere to be seen when I took the pictures. Must move along, rather than wait for a sunny day. After turning it every which way, the photo below is the best I could do.
Take my word, it twinkles! Have a fabulous day!
