Stampin' Up! Mediterranean Moments for Special Memories

Stampin' Up! is definitely near the top of my 'best jobs I've ever done' list as there's so much opportunity to achieve fabulous incentives not least the annual incentive trip. With the help of my fabulous team and wonderful customers I've been lucky enough to achieve a few now and last year's one was a Mediterranean cruise, which is why I've chosen Mediterranean Moments stamp set from the Spring Catalogue to share with you today.

The images remind me of a fabulous holiday then and also one with my family some years ago when we visited Rome, Florence and Pisa.  I thought it might be too much history and sightseeing for the children who were then just 7 and 11, but they loved it as did Martin and I.  
My card is very simple.  The image is stamped firstly onto thick white card stock with memento black ink. I stamped it again with black Staz On onto watercolour paper and then used my new favourite Stampin' Up! watercolour pencils and an aqua painter to colour the image.  I always tell my customers I'm not a Colourer Inner, but I'm really pleased with how this turn out.

Once I finished the colouring I used the Lots of Labels frame lits to die cut my image and then carefully adhered it over the original stamped image just giving a slight impression of it carrying on just like my memories of happy times spent.  

Another image from the set is below and has also been coloured with the water colour  pencils.  

Please note 

 The  fabulous watercolour pencils are available to order from the Spring Catalogue, but are  SO  FABULOUS that we've already almost depleted the entire supply!  Stampin' Up! will turn off the order code to make them unorderable very soon to avoid long and large back orders.    If you want them, you need to order them today.

Check back soon to see how I make snowy mountains out of Carried Away Designer Series Paper for our Christmas Card Club challenge on Sunday.  

Hugs all Zx
