Last week over at Stamping and Blogging the sketch challenge was grids….I’m a huge fan, so I think I actually created 6 or 7 cards for the challenge, and here I am still playing with the challenge and we already have a new one, haha!..oh well, I was also still creating with the color wash technique (which I shared here), but in a bit of a different way so I thought I would share it with you and yes I’m still creating with my SECRET GARDEN STAMP SET from Stampin Up – it’s so versatile, it’s working with so many different techniques.

Do you remember the “black magic” technique from 4 or 5 years ago?  Well, I tried it with this newer color wash technique. (we used to use pastels to add the color on the Black Magic technique).


this time I used the solid image stamp and stamped the flowers, dried them with my heat tool, painted them with my ink pad lids(Rich Razzleberry)  and my Aqua Pen, added outlines with my White Gel Pen – Ok, so my Zentangles overlapped my color wash

technique, LOL.. and my grids are made with Stampin Up Square Punches the 1 inch Square and the 1-1/4 inch square – they layer so nicely, yeah!…and my background is created with Big Shot Large Scallop Edgelit and coordinating Delicate Designs Embossing Folder – “sweet”, and I had to sneak in my other favorite stamp set this week – PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS – it’s a sentiment stamp set, check out page 140 of the Big Catalog…I used it for the 4 card Technique Tutorial for this month too!…it has some great sayings.


Here is another, with 3 grids this time.  Did you notice this time I’m painting and coloring on Lucky Limeade – this technique truly works on all colors.  I think I used Turquoise and Rich Razzeberry on this one.  and check out the DELICATE DETAILS LACE TAPE – it’s new in the Spring Catalog, it’s been sitting here awhile, so I thought I better give it a go…it’s awesome, adds a beautiful layer to your cards so easily as it’s sticky on the back, so just lay it down and trim it….I’ll be getting more for sure.

My sentiment for this card is from LOVING THOUGHTS another great sentiment set from Stampin Up, this one is on page 136 of the big catalog.

Hope you enjoyed my shares today, and I hope you will give this technique a try.  I’m getting tons of e-mails from stamping friends old and new who have tried it and love it!…I know you will too!
