Today Clear and Simple Stamps is launching the "Spread the Love" Campaign. You can find out more about it below:
There are 6 color schemes to work with, which you can find on the CSS blog. Here's the one I chose to work with:
...and here's my project- not a card, but rather something that you could hang up on the wall!
Now you might be wondering...who's my blog crush? It's Katie Rodgers, from Paperfashion. She's a local Boston artist, who works in my favorite medium (other than paper, of course)- watercolor! She's not afraid to add glitter and sequins to her paintings, which I love. My favorite is probably this one.
I used my CSS stamps to get started, by stamping a jar and flowers in a very light ink:
can you even see it?
I then watercolored the image using the stamped image as a guide.
To accent the painting, I outlined it with a glue pen and threw on some gold glitter.
There will be some team members posting today, and some throughout the week. I hope you play along for your chance to win!
