Last Day of CDS Sneak Peeks

Good Morning! Today, I'm sharing another supercute stamp set by Clear Dollar Stamps, called "Porch Conversations". This stamp sets offers a larger stamp of the front porch and swing and is ideal for watercoloring or Copic coloring. This sample that I made for "Porch Conversations" was another case of having fallen in love with the designer paper and was just itching to use it and waiting for the perfect occasion. Well, when "Porch Conversations" came to my mailbox, I knew that the occasion had come! The floral background and checked bottom would compliment the lovely image illustrated by Laurie Wilson. The main image was watercolored with Derwent Watercolor Pencils for a soft and summery look. And when I finished with watercoloring the image and sewing it all together, I added the computer-generated sentiment "Smile!" to the card as who wouldn't smile sitting on that front porch? "Porch Conversations" can be purchased July 1st at www.newcleardollarstamps.com. For other samples of "Porch Conversations" by my fellow CDS Design Teammates, visit Candy Fosta, Stacy Morgan, Kim Teasdale, Tori Wild & Laurie Wilson.
