Hey crafty peeps! It's the Victoria Day long weekend here in Canada and what a beauty it was weather-wise! I was totally dreaming of the water and sandy beaches when I created this card using the new release "Sandy Toes" stamp set from Artful Angel, available May 25th.

Stampendous Watercolor Whimsy with StamprGrl
Good day friends! Phew it's been one heck of a few months and I seem to be having the hardest time getting things together, including my Watercolor Whimsy posts! This is a watercolor collaboration between myself and Dalis who is also known as StamprGrl!
So, for this month we are working on a Stampendous stamp set! I have chosen this one called Daisy Thanks.

Hello my friends, thank you so much for joining me today! I am here to share one of my Tangled bookmarks with you!
I created this bookmark using several tangles and fill-ins. I created the watercolor background first. Then added the drawing with my brown Micron pen. To finish the drawing, I added shading and highlights with my graphite pencil and Prismacolor Premiere pencils. I think this one is my favorite out of all 6. I matted the bookmark onto black paper and punched the top. Then I laminated it and added a handmade tassel. I will be sharing more bookmarks with you soon!
I am in the process of moving both myself and my daughter in what could be opposite directions lol, so things are very sporadic and chaotic for us right now. Please be patient with me as I get into SOME sort of schedule again ;)

Dream Home by Woodware Stamps
Good day friends! Have you discovered Woodware stamps yet? I have and I am obsessed with them. Especially the ones designed by Francois Read. I have started a collection, I'm gonna be real lol. Especially Francois' gnomes! They are stinking adorable and are currently one of my top two absolute favourite gnomes :) (if you want to see my other favourite, stay tuned ;))
I stamped this Dream Home stamp in a grey ink (moving crafty stuff to a new place...) because I couldn't find my black ink lol. It's a different look, but not one I think I will repeat. I colored the image using my Copic Markers and layered it over some patterned paper from my stash (also a chore to find lol). I added some enamel dots and some white highlights with my white gel pen. I added the sentiment from the set and popped it up on dimensional adhesive to finish it off.
I'm sure you've seen some of the other Woodware stamp sets I have, I am enjoying them thoroughly.
I will see you again soon with my fun!
