Good morning!  I can hardly believe that it’s Thursday already and I’ve been in the mood to work in the studio all week.  I think my trip to CHA was what I needed to get the mojo working!

I’m sure y’all are getting tired of me using The Magic of Oz right now, but I’m having fun playing with the different stamps that go along with this collection.  I’m also waiting on getting the other Graphic 45 paper collections and the stamps that go with those!

Anyhoo, today I decided to watercolor the Scarecrow from Magic of Oz Stamp Set 1.  The interesting thing about this image, is that I’m using a prototype of new inks made for Graphic 45 by Clearsnap.  The colors of ink match the papers and I’m over the moon and back!


When water coloring the image, I pushed the ink pad onto my craft sheet and then picked up the color from there.  I’m sure if I had used reinkers the colors would be much richer.  However, sadly I don’t have reinkers to match.  These inks are in testing and I can say without a doubt, I like them!  The colors I used are:  Triumphant Red (yeah a red that matches the G45 papers), Dark Cashmere, Antique Moss and Venetian Lace.  There is also a blue and black.

I love the little chipboard piece from Tags 2 that says “Remember” with this image.  Okay we can “remember” to save the date, or change it up a bit and I just “remember”ed it’s your birthday!  Lots of uses.

Well, I guess that’s all for now (I think I’ve lost my train of thought again).  Thanks for stopping by today and don’t forget that the eclectic Paperie Distress Stain hop is tomorrow!

  5. Really cute card. I have checked out the Graphic 45 web site as well as other sites, but am not sure that I can get creative enough to purchase the stamps and paper to match. You do a fabulous job of using your supplies, so maybe you’ll inspire me, again!

  6. The inks sound fabulous since I’m a huge fan of Graphic 45. Can’t wait until the inks are available to purchase. Do you know when they’ll be available???
