Stop and Go Blog Hop!


***If you are here for the new Clearly Whimsy Stamps release post, please scroll down!***

Welcome to the Stop and Go Blog Hop featuring inspiration using the Stop and Go stamp set designed by Miriam Prantner for Neat & Tangled stamps!  You should have arrived from Alexandra's blog to start the hop.

I wanted to do something a bit diffferent for "coloring" my stoplight.  I used some cheap watercolors to paint the colors onto some Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock.  This paper is the bomb!  I've used the smooth surface but there is also a textured side too!

Stop and Go1

After my cardstock dried, I stamped my stoplight image and sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  And just because......I splattered red across my image and I couldn't resist adding some Glossy Accents to my little heart die cut with the Mini Hearts Die from Simon Says Stamp.

Stop and Go2


Now it's time to check out the fabulous ladies that join me in this blog hop today:

Amy---->>you are here!

Now there can't be a blog hop with prizes, right?  You have TWO chances to win a Stop and Go of your own!  So make sure you comment not only over at the Neat & Tangled blog but on all the blogs in the hop!  Comments will close Saturday, April 26th and winners will be posted on Monday, April 28th.

Your next stop on the blog hop is Cheiron's blog!  Enjoy the hop!
