Paper Crafting Blog Hop - Charming Sentiments

Welcome to the Paper Crafting Blog Hop! Our July 2022 blog hop includes Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrators from around the world...including the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia!  Get ready to be wowed by a variety of creative projects and design styles!  You may have arrived from Annettes's Blog...I hope you were inspired by her project!

We are featuring cards that provide encouragement this month. Below is the card that I created with the Charming Sentiments BundleAdventurous Journey stamp set, and Lovely in Linen Designer Series Paper.

>With July being World Watercolor Month, I had to add a watercolored element and the row boat was a good option. After stamping the boat with Saddle Brown StazOn ink, I used watercolor pencils to outline the edges of the boat and the different sections of the floor.  A touch of water with my Water Painter softened the color.  I typically use Stampin' Blends, so this was a challenge for me!

I did fussy cut the boat and the oar, but I used the dies for the sentiment!  That's what I love about the Charming Sentiments Bundle...fussy cutting made easy!
