No Stamps Allowed!

At Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge Blog this week, the challenge was to make a card or project without using any stamps! I was inspired by Sandy Allnock's youtube video in which she watercolored the die cuts using Pinkfresh Studio's Fruitastic dies with watercolors.

Used Zig Clean Color markers that I scribbled onto an acrylic block, then painted on the fruit with a small watercolor brush. Added some Wink of Stella glitter and white gel pen details and splattered white paint.

Embossed the background paper with a Sizzix Snowfall embossing folder (which makes me think of confetti, too!), and used a die from Papertrey Ink for the sentiment.

So hard to skip stamping, but the watercoloring experiment was really fun to try!
