Friends with Flair Time!

 
    Happy Friday, gang!  Hubby is on a vacation day today, and we are going to go for a nice long ride.  This man needs to get away.  Anyway, here is my Friends with Flair post for this Friday.  I used my Unity KOM of June.  Started with a kraft card base, added a scrap of designer paper, and then pondered.  Yes, I am hooked on doing water color now.  I put all the stamps together, stamped in Distress Ink, and pulled it together with a water brush.  I had a bag of the Claudine Hellmuth little craft sticks, and decided I would try using one for a sentiment.  I kind of like it!   I added a few tiny gems to bring in the sparkle.

     I would also like to enter this over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where this week the challenge is "Use you're favorite technique, and product".  Mine is water coloring, and Distress Ink

     I appreciate the visit, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and week ahead!
