Pretty Cute Stamps February 2016 New Release Blog Hop!

Thanks so much for joining us for the February 2016 New Release Blog Hop, where we are all sharing projects featuring the new stamps this month that are now available in the Pretty Cute Stamps Store.

If you came from Joann's blog - JLopez Designs, you are in the right place. If you just stumbled across this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit the Pretty Cute Stamps Blog

For my project for the hop, I've used the Work It stamp set to create this cute motivational card! I just love all the sentiments in the card. They are perfect for inspiring someone or using them for fitness!

I stamped my images on watercolour paper and then used Distress and Tombow Markers to watercolour them in. I really like scribbling my markers on acrylic blocks and then picking them up with a wet paintbrush. I'm finding it easier to apply and layer colour that way rather then colouring directly onto my paper.

I used a speech bubble from the Let's Talk stamp set and added one of the sentiments from the Work It set inside, and I added a bit of Stickles and some sequins to add some sparkle!

One more motivational sentiment inside! There are so many different occasions this would be perfect for!

Here's a look at this adorable stamp set!
