CSS Spread the Love Campaign

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!
