Stampers Showcase Blog Hop - It's Time for a Sale-a-Bration...

Calming Camellia

Hi and welcome to the Stampers Showcase January Blog Hop.  We are in the midst of Sale-a-Bration so today we are creating our projects with some of the amazing products which you can earn for FREE with a qualifying order.

There are so many gorgeous stamp sets and Designer Series Paper and if you HOST an event during Sale-a-Bration and have a qualifying order you will receive the Host set for free!  It is a really stunning stamp called Calming Camellia which looks absolutely beautiful just stamped in a single colour.  It is one of our DistINKtive stamps so all the detail has already been included but I wanted to add some colour.

I started by stamping the image on to Crumb Cake cardstock in Early Espresso ink.  I then spattered some extra ink around the stamped image before I started to colour.

I laid down a layer of white watercolor pencil on to the image to provide a lighter base.  Then using a Stampin' Marker (Flirty Flamingo and Mossy Meadow), a White Stampin' Chalk Marker and a Blender Pen, built up layers to colour the image.

I splattered the background with some Wink of Stella to add a little sparkle, added some linen thread and a sentiment taken from the same stamp set.

I love to colour and this one was a real beauty to bring to life.  I hope you like it.

I cannot wait to see what everyone has been creating.  Liz is up next and I know she will have something gorgeous to share with us.

Happy Stampin'
