SIMPLY THE BEST - CREATING KINDNESS BLOG HOP


Welcome to the May Blog Hop with the Creating Kindness Design Team.  This month we have special guest artist Carolina Evans from Australia joining us!  I have even had the pleasure of meeting this lovely lady at one of Stampin' Up!'s amazing events a couple of years ago and I can't wait to see what she brings to the hop.  I know it will be amazeballs!

The theme for this month is very broad - Technique.  There you have it and take your pick!  I went with the No Line Stamping technique.  This technique allows the inner artist in you to come out, as it truly doesn't look like a stamped image!


To create this look, you just need to stamp in a really light colour, such as Sahara Sand, as I did on this card.  Using the lines as your guide, you can then watercolour each image.  As you do, the lines become part of the image, rather than standing in stark relief.  I have used a lovely new stamp set called Varied Vases which will be available in the new 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! catalogue, June 1st.


Head on over to the delightful Lou Kitzelman to see which technique she has in store for you!
