Every Road...

Here is a great new set from The Angel Company. So often it's hard to find stamps that will really work on a masculine card but as I sat cutting out my rubber stamps, I knew exactly what I wanted to try first with this bicycle!

This couldn't be a quicker or easier card. I misted a piece of water color paper with some water and then used a brown Tombow marker on my image. I stamped firmly and lifted...slowly some of the ink started to spread into the wet paper. One section stayed perfectly stamped so I very lightly spritzed water across the paper (really more into the air above the paper!) and let that section run a bit too. Do not blot excess water off because that will lift the ink and really change your color {experience talking}.

The Winchester Soar with it Collection is a gorgeous color palette and even though there is a touch of purple in it, I normally use it for my more manly cards. These 3 pieces happened to be scraps I had and as I fiddled with them, the perfect layout formed for my card...gosh, I love that when that happens!! :)

So, I hope you like it...



Card Materials: all stamps and papers from The Angel Company
Stamps: Every Road, flourish element (retired hostess set)
Accessories: Winchester collection, twine, Nestabilities, Tombow marker, water spritz bottle, watercolor paper

PS. If you happened to watch America's Got Talent You Tube show last night, the dance team from West Springfield is from my daughter's high school. It was so fun to watch them on TV - I even drive one of the gals in my car pool!
