This "simply stamped" project contains a few different techniques for you to try!Today, I am in need of a boys birthday card and created this design. I started with Bazzill Cardstock in green and layered a square of Just Like Dad™ papers from TAC on top of that. I next stamped the boy from Everything Nice. I colored using Prismacolor watercolor pencils and Dove blender to "blend" all the colors together. I also paper pieced his hat and overalls. A bit of stippling in blue was done on the white background. Lastly, I just layered it all after stamping my sentiment and attached a photo turn.

TIP: One can achieve beautiful watercolor looks using watercolor crayons or pencils and Blending Pens! If you do not have watercolor pencils, Gamsol (100% Pure Odorless Mineral Spirits) will do a fabulous job. This will blend non-watercolor pencils. I use special "nubs" for the blending. I purchase these products on-line from Inky Antics. I'm sure it is available in other places as well.
My children: I have posted a picture in the left side bar of the page of my son 13 and daughter 9 for those who have asked. :)
