Chase Those Dreams!

Second favorite stamp set of this new catalog would be "Chase Your Dreams" - One of the reasons I love it so is.....if you count this castle as a Disney one (hey, it looks like it could be!) then I have been blessed to visit all the landmarks.  With the NEW watercolored pencils added to it, coloring it is such fun!

Click on the video below to see a quick 3 minute video on the How To!  It's super simple!

You will notice that I used three methods to color the watercolor pencils.  The background was done with liberal amounts of pencils and then blended with the water/aquapainter.  I colored the castle with a blender pen on all the grey and black areas.  The blue I used a clear Stella to blend.  All of it is done on whisper white cardstock.  The ribbon is a free SAB selection.

One of my favorite Occasions catalogs stamp sets!

This card is so much fun - especially for those of us who love shimmer, coloring and Italy!  All of the stamps included in the set take be back to the countryside and coastlines of Italy.

There is nothing fancy needed for this card.  If you don't have a Stella, you can use a blender pen to do the coloring.  Although the overall effect of the Stella shimmer make the card extra special.

Used in this project:  Mediterranean Moments, Memento Black pad, Saraha Sand ink, Clear and Gold Wink of Stella and assorted ink refills.

Here is a quick how to video so you can make your own!  Remember this month if you visit my webstore and place any $50 order you get a FREE Sale-A-Bration item AND I will send you the supplies to make some of my January projects!
