In my blood

When I first saw this set in our new Annual Insprations catalog, I knew I had to have it. Born & raised in Montana, nature & fishing runs in my blood and oh how I miss it. There is just no place like home.

But I can play with things that remind me of it & this was perfect.

I created this card with a CTMH stamp set called Hooked on You and then used my watercolor pencils to color the image in.

The trees are stamped with an image from the CTMH Nature’s Wish stamp set.

When I’m working with an image that will need to be colored or water colored I use an in that is not going to smear. I usually stamp all my black images with CTMH Black Archival ink, because I like the crisp clear image…. however, in this case I use the Memento Tuxedo Black & it provides a crisp image that doesn’t smear when colored. 

You can use the Black Archival ink for colored images but it’s best if it’s dried completely or heat set before coloring to prevent smearing.

Have a wonderful day!
