Merry Patterns | Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Project

Welcome to another Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop!

I am so excited to bring you a project made from a brand new exclusive stamp set called Merry Patterns.  This stamp set is part of an amazing new promotion by Stampin' Up! beginning September 1st!

For a limited time, customers can get the Merry Patterns Stamp Set FREE when you host a party with $300 USD/$375 CAD in sales. You’ll receive this exclusive holiday stamp set in addition to the fabulous Stampin’ Rewards you’ll earn when you host a qualifying Stampin’ Up! party. This offer ends on October 31, so don’t wait. Contact your demonstrator today!
When I first saw this stamp set, I couldn't have been more excited to see that Stampin' Up! included the outlines of the stamps, as well as some patterned "filler stamps". I love the look of a nice clean outine and love to watercolour as you can see in my project today.  But for those days when I simply don't have enough time, its nice to have an option to fill the outlines with images quickly.

To create this water colour look, I used tempting turquoise refill ink as well as crushed curry refill ink with my aqua painter.  I dried the ink between layers so that you can see the variations of colours.

Thanks so much for dropping by today, be sure to check out Dani's project today!
