August SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month you'll find 22 fabulous SOTM creations on the hop using School Year, a set of nine Back to School themed stamps. You might be arriving here from DARLYS'S BLOG. If you get lost along the way you can find the full list of hoppers here
I chose to highlight a single image from this set, the pencil. I stamped a row of pencils along the bottom of a panel of Watercolor paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then I misted the watercolor paper heavily with water. I dropped watercolor paint onto the panel, helping the color to move along in stripes across the panel. After the paint had dried I went back to stamp the sentiment in Tuxedo Black across the top. I added some hand drawn lines around the card front edge using a journaling pen, as well as some clear Shimmer Brush on each pencil.
 I'm linking this project up to the Just Us Girls Something Old/Something New Challenge. My Something New is the new Stamp of the Month, of course, and my something old is the sentiment from Little Dreamer (which is retiring soon) and my extremely well loved watercolor paint palette.
Be sure to ask your consultant about the August SOTM or click here to get yours before it's gone! Next up on the hop is GINA'S BLOG. Happy Hopping!
