Day One - February Krafty Previews!


Welcome Krafty Friends to Day ONE of our February Krafty Previews!!!

It certainly has been rotten weather this winter however, we have a really special set to show you today which will hopefully get your spring fever kicked into gear!

Today we are kicking things off with a sweet little set by artist, Becky Pearce called.....what else.....HELLO SPRING!


There are so many sweet little images that you can put together and mix and match! Plus three coordinating sentiments for a total of 18 fun stamps! This set is not only good for cards but would be awesome in your planner and/or with  your project life pages!!!

 

For my card I wanted to showcase what you could do with the little stamps in the set. I stamped the images onto some watercolor paper in StazOn. I then colored them up with my watercolor pencils. I then used a bit of water to color them up. for the splotches around the stamped images I put a bit of the watercolor on my Tim Holtz mat and then dabbed my fingers into it and then dabbed it on the paper (NOTE: it was a bit messy, but I love the end result!) In the middle of the flowers I also put a drop of yellow stickles. The paper is by My Minds Eye (Jubilee) and the same for the enamel dots.

You'll see HELLO SPRING! in action today in lots of sweet creations by the Krafty Girl design team in today's hop! Below you'll find links to all the gorgeous creations and while you're visiting the blogs, be sure to comment and leave some love for our designers because one lucky krafty person is going to WIN a gift card to the shop!
