water coloring

Seen this stamp (Penny Black ~ When I'm with You) as an ending in a few minutes a few days ago and thought hmmm its a K size if you bid here and you win you'd get it for less... ( I win a lot less now a days because it seems like all the crazies have started bidding stamps up to way over retail) anyways if you don't know this you can get K sized Penny Black from Dick at HMstamps (where the majority of mine have come from) for 10.00 so now that the commercials over with the colors in this stamp just really grabbed me right up there with what it is, I don't own many bear stamps nor colored index sticker stamps so it just seemed a little funny to me that this one grabbed my attention so quick... This is stamped with India Ink Black on Canson Watercolor paper. then colored with Twinkiling H2o's (i have to remember to make a list of the colors i own since this co. that makes this shimmer drying watercolor pots is closing its doors and the stampstruck store in medford still has a few packs left) This card is 5X7 in real life, the textured orange cardstock is from Provocraft (one of those things i never thought i would use but hung on to because it was thick enough i figured i could spray paint it someday if i wanted that texture) and the green cardstocks from Bazzill. Wrights hemming lace. pretty simple, the sentiments from the Stampin Up set called Always. (love these) Index sticker was the inspiration for the colors of the bears image.
h2o's colors are: bronze medallion, ginger peach, persimmon, mandarine citrine, yellow rose, autumn butternut, sky blue, azurite, pink cloud, poppy red, green tea and heavenly bamboo

I think that you did a great job "copying" the colors, Stacy.

I always enjoy seeing your cards.
