Hi, Stampers!      I hope you enjoy a pleasant Labor Day and that you have lovely weather for what is considered summer's last hurrah.  :-(   But, one good thing about September, besides that it's usually a beautiful month, it's Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog time!  The HC is open for business on Wednesday, September 4.    Okay, to this card...      I saw the original of this card on Pinterest by Debbie Henderson - I like hers better, but thought I'd share mine, anyway, 'cause it's still pretty, I think.  I don't think you can exactly duplicate with water-coloring - either you've got it (the talent) or you don't - I'm somewhere in between I think.      Anyway, click here or the photo for the details .  TFL Happy Stampin’!

Hi, Stampers!      Another rainy day in the Indianapolis area - I feel sorry for the Mini-Marathon Runners and the Kentucky Derby fans and "runners," too, just south of us in Louisville.  Good day for stampin'!  I've just finished up the samples for next Saturday's Stamp Camp.      This card was inspired by a tutorial at FrenchieStamps and it really is quick.  Details below. Happy Stampin’! Sue Duffy ~ Shake some Brusho Crystal Colour* - remember you don't need much - onto a piece of Watercolor Card Stock, cut to 3 x 3-3/4. Use 2-3 colors, at most.  I used Prussian Blue and Yellow.  Spritz with a fair amount of water and with your Aqua Painter or a wet brush spread the color across the paper!  Let it dry - that's it!  If you want to dry with a heat gun, the color will lighten a little. When your color-washed piece is completely dry, pat with your Embossing Buddy and stamp desired image from Dandelion Wishes in Versama
