You are too kind!

In the second release of Sale-A-Bration there is this beautiful Springtime Foils Speciality Designer Series Paper! This paper is glossy with Gold Foil, Rose Foil and Silver Foil design. Place a $60 order before March 31 to receive this paper FREE!
I wanted to try out colouring this paper using alcohol in my Aquapainter instead of water. Used Lemon Lime Twist and my aquapainter to colour in the leaves of the vine paper. Then after it dried used a Sponge Dauber to rub colour over the rest of the piece of designer series paper.

All about Paper Pumpkin!!

Paper Pumpkin is celebrating 5 years by giving a free gift to each subscriber! We won't know what it is until we open the box but I know it will be something that each of us will want! This free gift is exclusive to March's Paper and cannot be found anywhere else.

Stampin' Up! has created this special Paper Pumpkin video, it's a great look back at some of my favourite kits the past few years:

If you don't know: Paper Pumpkin is a fully designed project kit that arrives at your door each month with stamps, ink, and paper—everything cut and ready to go, so you can skip to the fun. You'll be surprised with fun projects like cards, gift packaging, home décor, and more for just $26.95 CAD a month (shipping included).

I love the surprise showing up on my doorstep once a month. And an even better way to celebrate a birthday? Sale-A-Bration FREE products when you purchase a 3, 6 or 12-month prepaid subscription!

My project today is one of the cards from February's kit.
While February's kit is pretty, I am not a huge fan of how the letters seem flat and don't pop! But I do like most of the other elements in the kit. If you are in need of inspiration to use your Paper Pumpkin head over to the Facebook group: Paper Pumpkin Fan Club! Every month members of the group share their alternative projects using Paper Pumpkin!

How to sign up for Paper Pumpkin? There are 2 ways:

Colour Challenge - Global Stamping Friends

Welcome and Happy Blog Hop day to you! This month we have a colour challenge to share!

From the watercolor paper I cut out the word first, then did the Lemon Lime watercolor wash over it. I kept the cut out pieces together so that the words would be sturdier when the words would be wet. Once dry the main piece is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. The Island Indigo piece was run thru the hexagon embossing folder to create some background flare.

Stamps: Lovely Inside & Out
Colours:  Lemon Lime Twist, Early Espresso, Island Indigo
Accessories: Lovely Words Thinlits dies, Aquapainter, watercolor paper

Thanks for stopping by!
