Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peek - Day 2

My first card for today combines two single stamps that will be released on Friday, River Scene, and Psalm 23:2. I stamped the River Scene on a piece of watercolor paper and used markers and my Niji waterbrush to watercolor the image. After putting together the card, I stamped the sentiment on a piece of cream mulberry paper and frayed the edges before attaching it to the cardfront. I don't watercolor all that often, but I just love how vibrant the colors are!!

The second card reminds me of autumn, with it's earthy colorway. I used the set Bee-Lieve and stamped the flowers on some rust mulberry paper for the background, then I stamped the mail image on white cardstock which I then cut out with the Labels 5 die. To soften the white, I sponged on some rust / pumpkin ink while the cardstock was still in the die. The little bee charm is my favorite addition. :-)

Ready to see more samples??? Check out my dt sisters!! They'll be sure to WOW you!! Then come back tomorrow for day 3! See you then!!
