Market Street Stamps Block Party!

Hi ya!  I'm back with another Kim Geiser inspired card using a new stamp that was just released last night from Market Street Stamps!  But more importantly, did YOU order?  Are you waiting on your new stamps?  Well, this is your chance to use what MSS you already have and come to the Block Party!



My card uses the new stamp set called Grow.  As soon as I saw this stamp, I knew exactly what medium I was going to use to color it!  However, I had to dig it out because I haven't used it in a long time!  Have you ever heard of Watercolor Palettes by US ArtQuest?  Well I have had the Stargazer colors FOREVER.  Probably one of the first things I purchased when I was a demonstrator for The Angel Company.  Now you can purchase them HERE and see the other color options!  I LOVE LOVE these!

The pearlescent and metallic colors are perfect and sooo easy to use with embossing.
I first embossed a white panel and embossed with black embossing powder.  By doing this, it is absolutely *almost* fool proof to color this in!  :)  The embossing resists the paint and so there is VERY little room for a mistake!

Here is one last pic to show the shimmer and shine of these watercolors!

This is absolutely stunning, Amy! I usually heat emboss any images that I plan to paint with watercolors. It *does* make the process foolproof, doesn't it? Gorgeous creation, all around. :)

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, - how many times can I say LOVE?! The coloring is fabulous and I love that you even colored a gradient into the "simple" part of the sentiment. Love the tip about embossing before painting!!
