“Faux Watercolor Stamping Bliss” ideas for Christmas.

Hello everyone – Cathie Allan here!

One of my classes this year is a wonderful, flexible class called “Faux Watercolor Stamping Bliss”.  To achieve the watercolor look for this project we did not even use water.  The result was a page and a tag/card that did not warp or heave and we did not have to use a bucket of mediums to create it.  I love using my mediums in unique ways, allowing them to multitask for me and mimic other products. The projects that we complete in the class looked like this ….

A wonderful masculine page and great “guy” card. Well for this blog post I took those same techniques, changed the colors, changed the stamps and stencils, changed the cut of my Super Stock and came up with some very “timely” Christmas ideas.  So for those of you who took the class in Edmonton at the Great Canadian Scrapbooking Carnival and for those of you who are about to take this very versatile class at the Scrap Chicks Gone Wild event in Winnipeg …. LOOK … where you can take the ideas that I shared with you. This class will provide you with endless inspiration for OH! so many projects as the techniques you will learn are not only timeless but OH! so adaptable.

My choice of stamp toys were all Impression Obsession rubberstamps, Clearsnap, Art Screens, pigment petal points from Clearsnap, Top Boss, clear and Izink.

I can’t wait to see you all in the class in Winnipeg and I will have all these projects there for you to draw inspiration from that use the same techniques that you will be learning in the class. Creativity knows no bounds with these ideas. Bring a great big smile because I know we are going to have a wonderful time getting very inky and very creative.
