MIM #247 & Sunday Stamps


 Water-colored Card Sets

The very sweet and super creative Melissa Phillips has a fun challenge which features water-colored card sets at MIM this week.  Her style and designs are soooo beautiful, just check out her video  HERE,  I'm sure you will want to play along :-)

I completed two of the card set using PTI's  Rosie Posie and Beautiful Butterflies stamp sets.  There is a third 'work in process' which I will add to this post in a bit.  Not sure I'll use solid stamps for this technique, they came out a bit too muddy.  Looking at all the beautiful entries, I'm thinking outline stamps are best.

 I am also joining a talented group of ladies at 
Sunday Stamps Challenge 125
This week it's all about color.
We can use a minimum of 3 of these gorgeous colors from the Palette above, plus any Neutral.  Check it out HERE
