Stampin'Up! Harvest Blessing

 Hello Y'All,
   Happy Labor Day!  That it's it for summer when Labor Day arrive for me it's the beginning of Fall. way back when I was back home on the farm that was a true statement "Labor" the harvest was just getting started around labor day weekend. I was raise on a Potatoes Farm so yes lots of Harvest at this time and Harvest come with Labor but I did enjoy that time of the year and watching the tress changing colors was the best part of fall. I sure miss the fall season from the East coast. Here in Cheyenne we have one color and that would be Brown. The great thing about Cheyenne we don't have the mosquitoes that the East coast have so it's always something good about each place..... Okay back to this Masculine card
I use the stamp set Harvest Blessing and it's perfect for masculine Monday and for Labor day. I use the watercolor paper stamp with StazOn and watercolor with markers and aqua painter I have a video on how to watercolor with markers HERE. I love watercolor doesn't matter if I use markers, ink pad or watercolor crayon I love it. The main thing that I love about watercolor is that you can take off some color and add and play over and over. Important thing is to use the watercolor paper if you use the regular card stock it will make a hold if you have to much water and play to long with it but watercolor paper is perfect.  The color card stock are Marina Mist, Early Espresso, Old Olive. On the strip of Early Espresso I emboss with Argyle Embossing Folder. Well my Friends this is it for this Monday and tomorrow is Showtime at Frenchie so make sure to stop by for a lovely purse.
Till then Happy Stampin'
