August 2017 Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring August's SOTM, which is School Year, a set of 9 stamps.  This set is great for those school pictures.  

If you have come here from Haley Dyer's Blog  you are on the right path!  This month we have close to 20 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go.....

I am thinking out of the box on this one. Here is the card I made.  

I wanted to see if I could use this set for something other than school and this is what I came up with.  The sentiment is my own lettering.  I stamped the pencils and messy water colored them. For the sentiment I dropped sots of the water color on and then dabbed it to lighten the colors.   

I used the following:
S1708 School Year SOTM
Z899 Black Memento Stamp Pad
Z3132 Watercolor Paints
Z3225 Medium Water Brush
Z1979 Marvy Uchida LePen Journaling Pen
1385  Daisy White Cardstock
1386 Black Cardstock

Thanks for hopping by :)
