I just couldn't do it!

So my craft room is a guest room this week and I have had to control my urge to go in and stamp. Everyone was gone for a couple hours this morning so I ventured in and played a little - ooohhhh it felt good!

I just got the Elements of Style stamp set and have been wanting to use some of the IN color ribbons so what better way than combining them. I also had the water color paper on hand and had not opened it up yet - so a triple play! I used the Regal Rose and Pear Pizzazz markers for the watercolor. I took the marker and scribbled on the plastic case for the stamp set - then took my blender pen and picked up some ink. Worked really well.
Card stock: Regal Rose, Pear Pizzazz and Blushing Bride
Ink: Basic Gray, Regal Rose marker and Pear Pizzazz marker
Ribbon: Pear Pizzazz 1/2 inch poly stitched ribbon (love that stuff)

While I had the room to myself I also tried this new technique - plaid silhouettes. I'll be highlighting this on Technique Tuesday soon!
The colors are Bashful Blue, Regal Rose and Wild Wasabi. I also used a new 'technique' for piercing the holes for the brads - perfectly symmetrical. I have lots to show my customers!
