This was another of our camp projects last month. How I love to color! Of course, it was not always so; as I’ve said before, I used to avoid line art stamps. But with instruction and practice, both my attitude and my technique improved.
On that subject, I’m sorry to report that as of this date, I have nothing new to report on the status of the Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Wonder Crayons that have been unavailable since July. I’m starting to feel desperate for the new colors — in fact, my old crayons are so well used (read: beat up) that I might consider simply buying all four color collections from scratch.
BTW, we added a bit of shimmer to the wings, halo, and dove by applying the Shimmer Paint with an Aqua Painter. Be sure to clean your AP before and after using the paint.
A note about the Elegant Lines embossing folder: It seems that this folder embosses more deeply that the others I own. It’s not too much of a problem on card stock, but we’ve had to reduce the shim when embossing envelope flaps. Even then it’s pretty deep, but since the envelope will be sealed shut, that shouldn’t be a problem. Of course, every Big Shot has its own personality, so YRMV — your results may vary!
