The Ton’s Fall 2017 Release Blog Hop



Hello! I am thrilled to be joining The Ton for their Fall 2017 Release blog hop! They have some stunning new holiday products that I am really looking forward to using for some of my Christmas cards and projects! 

The Ton has 24 new stamps, coordinating dies and 6 Couture Mixes for their new Fall 2017 Release which includes up to three free gifts with purchases. For more information on The Ton’s incentive gifts, head over to The Ton’s blog. All new release products are available now!  



For my first card I used the gorgeous new Holly Branch set. In this set, there are the outline stamps which I used here, and there are also solid stamps you can use along with the outlines or by themselves. I stamped everything in waterproof black ink and watercolored it with Peerless watercolors.


After everything was dry I splattered some of the same color green watercolor paint around.


***



For my second card, I used the Holiday Love Poinsettia stamp set. I stamped it with black ink, then colored it with a combination of Copic markers and Prismacolor Colored pencils. 



After I was done coloring, I splattered it with some white acrylic paint.

Three new release stamps will be given away to random commenters from the hop participant blogs. To qualify, you must leave a comment on The Ton Blog Hop post. The comment period will close on Monday, September 11th at 11:59pm. Winners will be announced thereafter on The Ton’s blog.

    1. Oh my, Kay! These are gorgeous. You have such a wonderful way with watercolors as seen in that first card. I really like how you not only color in the image so nicely, you add the background color, too. And the splatters! The second card is so festive for the holiday. An iconic image of the holidays colored so nicely. Beautiful work my friend. Congrats on the guest designer spot! Hope you have a fabulous weekend! Hugs! :)
