Watercolor Stamping with Twofers

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to play with my Local King Rubber Stamps and needed a challenge to spark my imagination....
Twofers came to the rescue - the theme is watercolor stamping.


I used watercolor markers and colored my stamp, stamped it onto glossy card stock and then die cut it. One ostrich was not enough, so I stamped him some grey companions. Added splatters just for fun and some Washi tape. The sentiment also comes with the stamp set.


Here you see better that the die cut ostrich is mounted with foam tape. I am thinking birthday card for an Australian here - I think it works even without a specific birthday sentiment, or?

Linking up with:
ATSM - Make your Mark


Happy Stamping!

Your ostriches card makes me smile...reminds me of Sesame Street's "One of these things is not like the other' song! Such fun! Sentiment? Totally fine without!

That ostrich is not only colored beautifully, he makes me laugh because of the nutty expression. Of course, it will work for any birthday, no matter the nationality.
