CAS Watercolour Bird on a Mug!

Birds and Spring Go Together!
The perfect Challenge Bonnie...Thank you!

Distress Oxides and New Stamp Sets, what fun!

Recently I received a new order from STAMPlorations and and had 
so much fun playing with my new stamp sets!

I began by Splashing (Video by Loll) a background using Distress Oxides inks:
Fossilized Amber, Seedless Preserves, Cracked Pistachio and Faded Jeans.

Then had so much fun stamping my images using my 3 new stamp sets:
all available at STAMPlorations. 

Next I framed my piece with SU Perfect Plum Core-Dinations CS (ret) 
and popped up with fun foam.

Such a quick and fun 5" x 5" square card.  I sent my card to Shery Russ, 
owner of STAMPlorations,
which she has received and she said, "brightened her day".

Be sure and check out the awesome samples by the CAS Watercolour DT and GD.
You have until the 24th to play along.  Hugs...
