Twinkling H2O's...:0)

Oh my, why did you all not tell me sooner to go out and buy these little beauties? I mean really and you call yourselves friends....hehehehhehe I forgive myself, I mean I have read for at least a year (I think) about these...hehehehe

Well, DH and I went shopping the last week one night after work and I asked him to stop by this sweet craft and frames shop before we went to dinner.... Because, we happened to have been one town over and they have some cute things and I hate to pass up a chance to just peek... I do not make it over there to shop very often... All, I have to say is I went in bought one six pack of H2O's and now I want more...:0) The scan does not do this image justice at all.. As many of you know that whom already play with these... Bought the pack with Nutmeg (my favorite), Evening primrose, Fresh oregano, Caribbean mist, Coral berry and Razzleberry... Woo hoo, I need more, is what I said after playing with them...:0) I first stamped the image in Old paper ink from Ranger, then painted it in using H2O's and a water pen from M's the green one.... I masked off all but the water and went back over it with Versafine, O.B. so, that you cloud see the movement of the water that the stamp has to offer... The corners are wire formed into rustic photo corners... Matchbook style card made from Bazzill card stock... TFL

Stamp: Auntie Amy's Embossing Arts
Inks: Ranger Tim Holtz, Old paper; Versafine, O.B.
Wire: Fun wire 22 gauge
Wired Worker to twist the closure... That is one of those had to have it forgotten tools... I used it....:0)

Great card. I just want to tell you I took a class with these before and there are some tips I will have to share with you. Once thing he taught us is to spritz a little bit of water into your pot and mix. (small amount) add more for lighter shade less for darker. Its a great product I love them. This card is really nice.. Love the colors and the layout..

He he he, we were keeping the H20s a secret but I see you've discovered them after all!! Watch out - they're addictive!

I am sure the H2O's are kind of like the aquacrayons with the vivid colors and ease of "coloring".

See why I love the Lyra crayons? Thanks to Meg for my addiction.....
