Blogging Friends Blog Hop July 1st!

Hello and welcome to another fabulous Blog Hop! If you are joining me from Leanne's Blog , you are now in Canada!
Happy 150th Birthday Canada, and thank you for sharing this special day with us! What a milestone for this awesome country we live in! Also a shout out to all my American friends who will be celebrating the 4th of July! Happy Birthday to you to.
Todays theme is Water Coloring and I am so excited to be sharing this first card in honour of Canada's 150th Birthday Celebration. 
True North Strong & Free

Stamps: Colorful Seasons,Labeller
Cardstock & Ink: Whisper White,Watercolor Cardstock,Real Red,Archival Black,Cherry Cobbler,Crumb Cake
Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies,Big Shot,Watercolor Brush,Spritzer
I inked up the Maple Leaf Stamp with Real Red, Spritzed it with water and stamped on the Watercolor Paper. It gives the leaf a mottled look. I finished it of with full strength Real Red with the vein stamp. My favorite is after I water colored the chair, I stamped the small Maple Leaf on it! 
Next: I saw a cheat using this Labeller stamp set. Ink up the whole set leaving it all mounted on the clear window sheet it comes on, turn it over and press them all down on the Whisper White Cardstock! Cut out the letters you need save the sheet of the unused letters for later use, what a great idea! Now why didn't I think of that! Just remember to really ink them up good, then just go back in with a black marker and fill the letters in if needed.

This second card is my absolute favorite. Although it is not a water color technique, it is an Rubbing Alcohol & Ink Technique!

This reminded me of a sunset and looks incredible. Add drops of Re-inker of your color choice onto Glossy Cardstock. Spray directly over top with the Rubbing Alcohol. Add more as you like. I turned my paper to have it run and that's how I got the look of the sunset! In my eyes anyway. The Glossy paper also heat embosses beautifully, I was a little scared but it melts like butter.

Stamps: Wood Words, Colorful Seasons
Cardstock & Ink: Glossy White,Whisper White,Berry Burst,Versamark,Pumpkin Pie,Daffodil Delight,Melon Mambo
