Three Amigos March 2016 Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos Blog hop.  We are three Close to My Heart Independent Consultants with a love for stamping and scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you.  On the 3rd of each month we feature a different CTMH product and create a card, layout, or other project.  There are only three stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through.

This month's theme of "3" is to use three stamps on our project. With the Stampaganza 2016 promotion going on right now, this is the perfect theme. I put together a card using A1185 Friendly Wishes, C1638 Spring Critters, and D1465 Botanical Backgrounds.

My stamped images are colored in using the watercolor paints and our paintbrushes.

Since our stamps are clear acrylic, I was able to curve the "Just Because" phrase to follow the curve of the flag.

I brushed a small swatch of watercolor onto the inside of the card before stamping the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hop over to Lisa's blog and Donna's blog to see what they have created for you.

  1. Very cute and great coloring! I still have not used the watercolors. I'll have to get moving on that!

    1. Thanks, Donna! I need to practice with the watercolors a lot more.

  2. How cute.... I love the little sentiment on the back of the card. Miss you

    1. Thanks. Betty! I miss you too! I'm still trying to find a way to get back for a crop!

  3. So sweet! You are showing a lot of control painting, too! Such a cute card and parading chicky.

    1. Thanks, Mary! It must be the perfectionist in me. I tried to paint "messy" with splotches and spatters, but didn't like my results. I need more practice.

  4. Finally I'm here! It's been a week. So glad I made it because this is just the cutest!
