It’s been hard to contain this one! Azaleas — soon they’ll be kickin’ it live all over the Midwest, and many of you already have them infusing your neighborhoods with carpets of bright color. (I’m totally jealous, so try not to rub it in.) Whether you have Azaleas in bloom or not, let’s come together and gawk at this pretty new set, shall we?
Folks who’ve known me for a while know this: I’m a papercrafting poser. What you all do with stamps, ink, paper, and a “embellies” AMAZES ME. If I need to make a card, I fold a piece of 8 1/2 x 11 typing paper in half, and I draw something on it. Not quite up to your standards, I know. But in my defense, since I can draw things to make into stamps, I hope I can sort of hang with your crew. (If you will have me... Please?)
I chose the Azalea set for my debut Power Poppy stamping foray, bringing it into full tropical-toned glory with watercolors and gouache paint. It sure was neat to watch it go from an outline stamped in Pinecone Brown to a colorful painting, in about an hour. I should make more of these and frame them. Put that on the post-launch-of-the-new-business list.
I just know you’re going to want Azalea in your stamp arsenal, and you haven’t even seen what else you can do with the other stamps in this 100% hand-drawn and hand-lettered 4 by 6" set. How about we get that going right about now...
Enjoy your day! And don’t forget to come back tomorrow, because OHHHH yes, we’ve got one more thing to show you.
