Colorado Craft Company Cuties


Hi crafty peeps!
So, Colorado Craft Co have been releasing some incredibly cute stamps , the illustrations are wonderful. They remind me of the Beatrix Potter days when I would read the books and try to lose myself in them. I used to imagine being one of the animals and I really believed they could speak! I have always loved this kind of illustration, and to have them in stamp form for me to colour is such a treat for me.

As I have said before, watercolouring is really hard for me. I think I probably just have to keep practicing...anyway, that lovely lady Cathy Zielske (the face behind CZ Design) was using distress oxides to watercolour one of the very same Colorado Craft co stamps! My stamps had been delivered that very same was such a coincidence, that I decided to give it a go. 
This is the result!

Now I am not saying they are great, but I think I did a better job with these and using oxides than what I have done using normal watercolours. 
One of the things I really like is using watercolour paper because its textured.There is just something about that with these images. Not sure if you have noticed, but I also did a bit of ink splattering too!

All the cards here use a combinations of three stamp sets by Colorado Craft Company.
I have to say, if you haven't checked out their website yet, you must it is full of adorable images...eeeek!

Well, thats me for now...I have been making a ton of cards so keep an eye out as I am going to bombard you with inspiration!
Bye for now
