Featuring Stowaway with Wendy!

Happy Saturday morning to you!  Wendy here this morning to host the blog for you.

The new Quick Quotes collection, "Stowaway", was just what I have been waiting for to scrapbook these beach photos. I love the blue and brown color combo!


I have been searching for a white ink that gets great coverage on dark cardstock. Coconut Powder Puff ink is the answer to my quest! I stamped the sailboat scene on the dark blue pattern paper.


I filled in the sentiment on this chipboard piece with Glossy Accents and allowed it to dry. 


To create the seashell paper, I stamped the image in Java on one of the beige papers from the 6x6 paper packs. While the ink was still wet, I pulled some of the color from the outline into the shell with a water pen. I "smushed" a bit of Baja Blue and Amaretto inks onto a nonstick craft mat, dipped my water pen into the ink and used it to watercolor the shell images further. 


Quick Quotes Supplies Used:
Stowaway Collection (Pattern Paper, 6x6 Paper Pad, Chipboard and Stickers)
Powder Puff Inks (Coconut, Blue Hawaiian, Baja Blue, Amaretto, Java)

Other Supplies Used:
Stampendous (Shell Background & Sailboat Bay Cling stamps)
Ranger (Glossy Accents)
Twine
Staples
Cardstock

Thanks so much for spending some time with us here today!
