Watercolor shells


I feel like I have been going mock 10 with my hair on fire lately, so no time to post or check out my friends blogs. Hope to catch up later this week, after I put the fire out. Also, I was lacking mojo or inspiration.
Late night stampers challenge this week was to use your "last chance" list stamps. Heck, I started that last week. However, this is my absolute favorite set-"seaside", the only one that made me tear a little.

I had a "slap my head" moment I could use this set like I did for the watercolor roses that everyone has been using fifth avenue floral to do, and off to my stamp room I went. I ran the creamy Carmel through my big shot using distressed textured plate. The sentiment is also from last chance list-big bold birthday, I just used a marker to omit the rest of the stamp and then used my small oval punch. I even pulled out some old hodgepodge hardware, as I am a confessed although reforming hoarder, I thought it went well with twill ribbon.

Beautiful color scheme. I wish I had gotten this set and played with it before it retired.

So pretty Kathy! Great idea to use this set for the reinker splash technique.
