Your Next Stamp July Feature (Sticky Note)

Welcome to the July YOUR NEXT STAMP feature post. Each month the design team uses specific stamps, dies or themes to create a project that will hopefully inspire you!

This month our theme is..........WATER!

As simple as this months feature theme may seem, I appear to be lacking in YNS water related stamps. This is something I need to correct immediately. I could have reached for a few new water related stamps/dies that were released recently (Flip Flop Fun, Flippin' Fabulous, Word Critter Gardening Birds), but I decided to give myself an extra challenge this month. My challenge was to use my water colours.

I dug out my distress ink for the fun effect on the background. I then inked up the STICKY NOTE frog and attempted to colour him with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush water colour markers.

I say 'attempt' because it took me a few tries with the water colours, till I was slightly happy with the outcome. The same can be said for the background. There was a lot of messy inky playtime, however,  I love how those came out.

Head over to the YNS blog to see all of the Design Team member sharing projects for this month's feature. Leave a comment on the blog post for the July Feature and you will have a chance to win a prize. One lucky stamper will WIN a YNS stamp set of their choice!
