Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop and Challenge!!

Good Morning- so glad you stopped by today. The Serendipity Stamps DT are showing off some new goodies in the store and combining it with this month's Serendipity Stamps Challenge-- We're at the halfway point for this month's challenge!! We're still playing with watercolor- how fun! This month's theme is Inspirational (believe, create, dream, imagine)!

At the half way point of each challenge we'll be showing more samples for the latest challenge and have a blog hop- that's today :) The hops are to show you what's new at Serendipity Stamps and to give you a chance to win some goodies of your own!

You should have arrived here from Carol's blog but, if you got lost along the way I have a full list below.  

I made a couple cards for today...

For this card I used Serendipity's Whelk, Scallop, and  Small Whelk stamps. The shells were stamped with versamark onto watercolor paper and heat embossed with white. Then, I used watercolors (actually SU for the soft shades) and loosely water colored over the top. The large whelk was stamped and colored on the main panel- the scallop and small whelk were stamped- colored- and cut out- popped on top for a little dimension. The Dream die was cut three times in different colors and layered a little offset.

Here's the inside...

The sentiment is Serendipity's My Life

A little close up so you can see the embossing and watercoloring!!

The next card uses Serendipity's Art cling stamp set.

The jar of brushes was stamped with memento tuxedo black, heat embossed with clear, and then water colored with Gansai Tambi watercolors. The Create die was cut three times, layered, and popped up with microfoam dots for added dimension. 

The inside sentiment.... you can click on the picture to get a closer look :)

The image- Serendipity Stamps Sprinkler is the 50% off stamp of the month!!

Great cards --I like the dreamy colors on the first one and your coloring on the second.

Mary Holshouser said...

Wonderful cards.
The first has a nautical feel.
The second is my favorite - I like
to dabble in paints and ink and this
reflects my interest.
thanks for sharing.
