StampNation LIVE 2014

Hello all,

As you read this, I am stamping in Raleigh, NC at the StampNation LIVE retreat!  3 full days of fun and friends.  I so look forward to this event each year. As Catherine & I planned the weekend this year we focused a bit more on teaching, trying, using products and techniques that maybe people haven't tried before...stencils, Copics, Distress Inks, Gelatos etc.  At today's "Try-it Table" I am working with Distress Inks.  The watercolored look on the flowers on the card above is one of the techniques I will be showing.  These gorgeous roses from the Coming Up Roses set by WPlus9 were stamped in Distress Inks on watercolor paper, then painted over with water.  I love how distress inks blend together! 

I'll be posting more from StampNation LIVE when I return home.  If you'd like to see what we've been up to, we have updates going up on StampNation and Catherine's Facebook page every couple of hours!

I hope you are having a great weekend :)
