Craft Therapy you know ūüėČ OK folks, one more technique using¬†the¬†shrubbery¬†¬†stamp¬†from Lost Coast Designs. I love to see how many ways I can use a stamp, don’t you?

Watercolor Stamping With Gelatos! (or faux-latos!)

Happy Monday, it looks really nice out today and I am happy about that because I am chaperoning a field trip that includes trekking through a bog…good times! I want to share a nature inspired card that is done rather quickly using gelatos (or gel sticks AKA “Faux-latos”, watercolor crayons or watercolor paint, they will all work!) you can make 2 one layer cards in under 10 minutes, love that!
