You should have just left stop number 7 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop - Melissa ~The Stamp Doc. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

Hey Girl!!

I just LOVE coloring (Can you tell?!) and I love playing around with colors and textures.  I am still mourning the Blendabilities, so using my aquapainter and re-inkers is kind of the same, but not really.  It is growing on me.  For the hair on this girl, I watercolored in Soft Suede all over (LET THIS DRY FIRST!!) then I watercolored some crumb cake in the highlight areas (it will lighten..bizarre right?)  and then in the end I used the Soft Suede marker to add the definitions and texture.  Phew. 
Tomorrow I'm going to try using only my markers and a blender pen.  Wish me luck!!

This print was something for my daughter to give to her friend on their play date today.  She helped pick the paper (Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper Stack), the colors, the stamps, and the embellishments.  I just adore stamping and creating with my daughter!!  (she is 8 by the way...and TOTALLY going to out-create me soon)  

Don't you just LOVE this stamp set?!

What I love the MOST about this set is how EXTREMELY versatile it is!!  
You can watercolor the images if you stamp them in Staz-on, You can color with our Stampin' Write Markers, then blend with our Aqua Painter or Blender Pen, You can use the paper piece technique (check back next week for a sampling of that!).  So Many Options!!

Thanks for poppin in today!  Head on over to Bree's page next, you will LOVE her project today!!
