Abundant Watercolor Joy

I think this stamp set is so pretty! I love the flowers. Wasn't sure what color to stamp this then realized I needed to use my Watercolor Crayons to do it.
Tres Chic is the background stamp on the designer paper.
I colored directly on the stamp then spritzed it before stamping on to the watercolor paper. I like the way it turned out with the shading!

Renegade Turtle

I think this little guy is so cute! And a perfect example of how I feel!!!

If there is any one thing that I have learned in my life it is that - Life is definitely too short.

At least in terms of always following the rules. Now don't get me wrong I am not a law breaking, renegade citizen. I just feel that sometimes in life you just have to do what makes 'you' happy!

Stamping is something that makes me happy! So I love to stamp as much as I can. And as long as I am able to, I will continue to stamp!

When I was watercoloring this image I saw the saying laying on my desk and just felt it was the perfect saying to go with this little fellow. The saying is from Hero Arts. The turtle, water, and cattail sign are all Artful Inkables from Starving Artistamps.

I watercolored the image with watercolor crayons from Stampin' Up. The paper is Chocolate chip, groovy guava, shimmery white and designer paper.

Motorcyles and stamps, they do have something in common.

I decided to get these stamps in honor of my Husband! And besides I can blame them on him! LOL
About 6 weeks ago he went on a trip and decided to buy a Harley Motorcycle and ride it home. In his defense he did call me and ask me first. And even though I told him I didn't like the idea he did it anyway! Men!!! I think this is his midlife crisis.
Well, needless to say I have had some enjoyment from it. It is a nice motorcyle and I can comfortably ride with him.
So in honor of the motorcyle purchase I purchased these Artful Inkable stamps from Starving Artistamps. I really like the saying. It is quite appropriate I think.
The paper is basic grey, chocolate chip from SU and Shimmery white. I decided to use the brads as they reminded me of motorcycles.
