TAWS post #1

Hello My Fellow Crafters!!

I'm honored to be here with my first official non-release post for TAWS (The Alley Way Stamps)!!  I'm using one of the newly released stamp sets called Oogles.

My first card consists of a large panel of watercolored paper.  I was simply playing around with my watercolors and this was the result!  I like to make lots of fun panels like this at one time so that I have them available when I want to use them.

I stamped my image using black Hero Arts ink and then stacked some presents and a cake from the new set Cake Day!

I added my sentiment - stamped twice with Versamark Ink and heat set with both black, glittery embossing powder and gold embossing powder to give it a shadowy look.  I embellished with some heat embossed hearts and stars and then used my Copic multiliner to outline the panel and add a few dots.  My last touch was to add one googly eye on my monster to give him extra personality!

My second card for today is also using the new Oogles set and I just went wild and crazy with the watercolor splatter paint!  My panel uses watercolor paper which I stamped my main image onto and then watercolored using my Sakura Koi pan paints.  I added my sentiment and then masked my image and splattered away!  I embellished with some gold embossed hearts and added this panel to a blue top folding notecard.  
Thanks so much for coming by today!!
