CTMH With All My Love SOTM Blog Hop - October 2020

Welcome to the October 2020 SOTM Blog Hop featuring the stamp set With All My Love. This month there are approximately 20 CTMH Makers sharing projects created with the CTMH Stamp Of The Month With All My Love. Our blog hop is a circle; visiting the next blog (typically via a link near the bottom of the post) will take you back to where you started.

This has been a crazy week. Unfortunately I was not able to complete all of the cards I had planned. Please stop back later this month to see the cards I started using the reverse stamping technique. In the meantime, here's the card I created using mostly Distress Oxide™ Inks.

It is hard to see in the photo, but this watercolor paper started out as a really light pink. When I was practicing with the new Distress Oxide™ Ink Pads I hated to leave color on the mat when I was done, so I would spritz the mat with water and drag a fresh piece of watercolor paper through it. I set the paper aside to dry and use on a future project.

I added Victorian Velvet ink (because Tattered Rose was unavailable at the time I ordered) to the edges of the watercolor paper using the Mini Ink Blending Tool. I spritzed with water then dabbed the excess water with a paper towel. That's what caused the splotches around the edges. When that was dry I stamped with black. To add color to the stamped image I touched the corner of a Distress Oxide™ Ink Pad to the All-purpose Mat and used the waterbrush to apply the ink.

Before you head to ***Alyson Mayo's Create with Alyson***, the supplies I used to create my project are listed below.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart except where noted:

If you are not already working with a CTMH Maker, you may purchase all of the supplies I used at my Maker website.

I love to hear what folks think about the items I create. If you have a little time, please leave a comment letting me know what you think of my card. I hope you are enjoying the projects created with With All My Love — the October Stamp of the Month. Thank you for hopping with us!
