Clearly Whimsy Designs March Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the Clearly Whimsy Stamps March release Blog Hop!

The Clearly Whimsy design team have been sharing creations made with these new stamps and dies over the last couple of days, and today we are celebrating their release with a Grand Blog Hop!

On Thursday, we released 4 new Clearly Whimsy Stamps clear sets and 2 new coordinating crafting dies.

Jen Carter Whimsy Watercolor Circles Circles Thanks

Today I have another watercolor card to share using the Circles, Circles, Circles stamp set.  I had a lot of fun making cards with this set!  For this set I colored several different colors of aquacolor crayons onto an old CD case and then spritzed it with water.  I dipped the stamps in several of the colors and then stamped onto the watercolor paper.  I really like how it turned out!

I then watercolored onto another piece of paper and then die cut the Thanks Large Word die from that paper and adhered. I finished by punching a few tiny holes in the paper and tying a piece of silk ribbon onto the front.

New Products: 






We will draw one winner from the comments left on each hop post and that random person will win a $25 gift voucher to the Whimsy Store. Remember to comment on all the blogs in the hop in order to be eligible for the drawing.  You have until Wednesday, March 18th at midnight EDT to comment.

Thank you for explaining how you achieved the soft multicolored look!! I am learning watercoloring techniques, but I haven't looked into using the watercolor crayons. I have to remember this technique! You made a very gorgeous card!!!

This card turned out great. I wonder if the technique would work with gelatos or maybe some carefully dripped watercolors.

I love the colors you used on this card. When I saw this stamp set I was not impressed and would never have looked at it a second time...until I saw your "Thanks" card! Now it's on my "to order" list.
