Say it Big @ STAMPlorations

Hi, welcome to a post to announce the release of a brand new set of stamps from STAMPlorations.
Shery has added to her range of Say it Big sentiment stamps and I'm showcasing a couple today.

My first shows the fab 'Imagine the Possibilities' stamp combined with one of the stamps from Life in Full Colour.

On a piece of watercolour paper I stamped then embossed the row of paint brushes, then added runs of DI mixed with water to create a rainbow effect. I simply added water to make a drip to each of the brush tips then added diluted DI. I tipped the panel vertically so that the ink would run down following the track of the water, I found it easier to do one colour at a time. I wasn't bothered whether the colours ran into one another or not, I quite liked the randomness of the results. 
The sentiment was stamped in black then embossed with a clear EP. The brushes were coloured with Copics, the panel trimmed and attached it to a plain off white base card.

My second card has a totally different look with a bit of no line watercolouring. 

This time I took another panel of  w/c paper and stamped the spray In Bloom Radiant Rose with Tumbled Glass DI. Then using Picked Raspberry DI for the blooms and Mowed Lawn DI for the foliage, I washed in some colour for a no line effect. The white buds had a little touch of Weathered Wood added for shadow. Taking sections one at a time I roughly added clear water around the spray before adding a mixture of Blueprint Sketch and Salty Ocean DIs, allowing the colour to bleed out into the water, mopping excess as I went. When fully dry I stamped the 'You are so Precious' and embossed it with gold EP.

Again our separate monthly challenges are taking a break and combining them all in one month long challenge.

If you want a chance at winning, link up any project you make with the focus on the sentiment to our April Challenge. 
It's the perfect place to show us what you can do with these new stamps as well as the other bold and Typographia stamps. The link up opens up on April 4th and stays open until the end of the month, plenty of time to get your thinking caps on!
