Postcard stamp and die collection from Stamps By Me

Hello everyone  xx

Hope you're all well and have a lovely day planned

I'm back with some more samples for the new
Postcard stamps and dies collection being released now on c&c, by Stamps By Me 

I used:
By The Lake
By The Tree
Follow The Path

Today's samples are all watercoloured using the new Artist Watercolour Wheel.  I'm very new to watercolourin so these were a challenge but the images made it so easy.
Hope you like them.

Also used:
Best Wishes die Tag 3
Tall Flowers die
Artistic Stitch Frame die
Wildflower stamps
Distress Oxides
Distress Inks

I used the spotlight technique for this sample with By The Lake..adhering the square panel temporarily,  before stamping image in Smokey Grey versafine
I used the Artist Watercolour Wheel and a paint brush to colour it in.
The sentiment die is from the Best Wishes die Tag 1

I used a square die to create a frame
The image, By The Tree,  was stamped in Smokey Grey versafine and coloured in using the Artist Watercolour Wheel

I used the Artistic Stitch Frame die to create a frame for By The Lake , which was stamped in Smokey Grey versafine.
It was coloured in using the Artist Watercolour Wheel
Tall Flowers dies were used to create a 3d dimension to the sample

The Artistic Stitch Frame die was used again to frame the Follow The Path image... however my twist on this stamp was to make the "path" a river. .gives more versatility to this stamp!
It was coloured in using the Watercolour Wheel
Wildflower 4 & 5 were stamped in Cracked Pistachio and Peeled Paint Distress Oxides to add some dimension to the sample

I hope you enjoyed looking through today's post .. I had lots of fun colouring these in.
