Studio Calico Sandlot Kits: SQUINTS!

  Hi, guys!
If you haven't checked em out yet- make sure you run over and check out the new Sandlot Kits from Studio Calico! As soon as I heard the names of the kits this month, I knew I would be in love! I am a tried and true baseball mom and I've seen Sandlot more times than probably any other movie... lol!
Today I'm sharing a card I made with the Squints Card Add-on- still available in the shop!
I LOVE the stamps in this kit! And I really put them to use this month!
I was inspired by the fabulous Vanessa Menhorn and THIS card that she made- love how she stamped her floral background! I "lifted" her card for one of my projects in my gallery this month!
(You can see her full gallery HERE)
Here's how I made my card:
1. Gather supplies.
I grabbed some white cardstock, patterned paper, Versafine Onyx Black ink, stamps (from the Squints kit!), waterbrush, Peerless Transparent Watercolor Papers, and some tape.
2. Stamp your background.
I took three different sizes of the rose bud stamps and stamped them randomly to cover the card front.
3. Paint.
I chose three colors and watercolored over the stamped images.
4. Finishing touches.
I splattered some black paint, added a sentiment, and adhered the stamped sheet to a card base!
Thanks so much for the inspiration, Vanessa!
Thanks for stopping by! Check out the SANDLOT KITS before they're sold out- they're really great!
