I'm hoppin' with Clearsnap and Stephanie Barnard Stamps

Welcome to The Clearsnap & The Stamps of Life Blog Hop! All day today we're stamping and inking, creating and sharing. Be sure to visit everyone on the hop and leave a comment to be entered to win a fabulous prize of Stephanie Barnard's line of ColorBox inkpads, Stephanie Barnard Sprays!, and Stephanie's new SCREENS

I'm so glad you found your way to my blog I'm happy to share a project with you that I created using lots of Clearsnap Colorbox Spritzers and this background stamp and this alphabet stamp set.
 I created this card by stamping the background on watercolor paper in black in and then embossing it with clear embossing powder. The embossing is crucial for this project because the ink will run together if you don't have the raised lines.

After embossing I used the Colorbox Spritzers to make watercolors and paint each hexagon. I then stamped the title in black and also embossed it so it matched the background. Then I added a few finishing touches with twine and a heart shaped button.
Now, hop on over to..... Beverly Sizemore
