...two posts in one day. Wow.
I decided to also play this week's colour challenge as I L-O-V-E these colours together!! Real Red, Chocolate Chip and Kraft. Wow, wow. Chic Boutique was already on my table from my last project (I used the cursive "hello" stamp from that set) so that's what I used. I love how it turned out! My watercolouring is a little sloppy, but oh well. I actually used the "No Copics No Problem" technique, using SU! markers on watercolour paper and then blending with an aquapainter. Pretty, huh?

I just placed my Holiday mini-catalogue pre-order earlier this week and I'm getting antsy for my NEW RUBBER and goodies!! So I am warming up with some challenge stampin'. This is for Beate's Weekly Sketch Challenge.
I pulled some DP and some In Colors out of retirement for this one cuz, well, I was really sad to see those colours go (especially my Kiwi Kiss!!) I also used my circle cutter - I gotta say, I'm still getting used to using this contraption, and while I LOVE the idea of it, I am afraid my execution leaves a lot to be desired (don't ask me how many circles I had to cut before I got my two perfect ones for that larger circle element!) The trick is that the c/s ABSOLUTELY CANNOT MOVE as you spin the blade. I'm afraid therefore scotch tape is the only thing that seems to work for me. I also need to review a blog entry that I was forwarded oh-so-many-moons-ago when this tool was first released: it showed how to properly set it up so that the no-slip pads are truly no-slip (I seem to recall that she used leftover rubber from a stamp set instead of the black pads that come with). BUT I WILL CONQUER!
