Life Shared

I was looking the Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalogue for an engagement stamp that would be appropriate to make a card with and send to my little brother and his fiance.  When I saw the Life Share stamp set (on page 60)  I knew that was the one that I wanted to make this engagement card.  It was perfect.   I gave them their card the other weekend when we were meeting her wonderful family.  I think they liked it.  The technique I used to water color was using a Blender Pen and Classic Stampin' Pad.  You  squish the Classic Stampin' Pad together (while still in tact) and when you open it there should be a pool of ink on the lid.  You then take a Blender Pen and take as much ink from the pool of ink as you want and then color your picture in.
