New Rogue Redhead Designs Release

I was excited to be able to play with the new Beach Babe stamps from Rogue Redhead Designs - especially creating a card based around the sailboat stamp since sailing is such a part of our summers. It's one of my husband's favorite pastimes. My stamped circle is colored with watercolors, but my favorite and quite serendipitous part of this card is the background stamp. Shar created a cool sandy beach texture stamp, but if you color the stamp with a watercolor crayon, spray it with water and then stamp it onto watercolor paper you achieve a background that looks like splashed water - how cool is that! A perfect fit with a sailboat!

Here's the background stamp just inked and stamped:

And here's how different the look is by using the watercolor crayon technique:

Check out the RRD blog for more information and samples using the new release (and it's even available at a discounted price until September 6th!)
