To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop. Ready for some inspiration? Here are a few of the projects I have created for today’s hop:


 
First up, I have a couple of cards featuring Melanie Muenchingers beautiful new set Stately Flowers 11. The top card was water colored with Peerless Water Colors. The bottom card was masked and sponged with GKD inks. I sprayed shimmer mist to the card front for a bit of sparkle. 
 
 
Next up I have two cards using images from Theresa Momber's Daisy Delight.
 
 
 I immediately fell in love with this huge daisy and couldn't wait to start water coloring it. I also water colored the ladybug and fussy cut it when it was dry. Before I adhered it to my card I stamped it where I wanted to place it on the flower. That way I didn't have to draw in the legs.


For my last card I created a CAS one-layer sympathy card. I did some masking and sponged peach bellini GKD ink to form a wide strip across my card front towards the top. Before I removed the masking I stamped my image and sentiment. Flowers were colored with Zig water color brush pens.
