Stretch Your Stamps 2 - Day 1

I won a spot in the online card class Stretch Your Stamps 2 (thanks Taheerah!!!!).  I've been wanting to take one of these classes for a long time and I'm so glad that I got a chance to do one.  There have been great technique videos that are just so awesome.  I would definitely take another class.

Yesterday was the first day, we were dealing with background stamps, heat embossing and water coloring.  I did start my water coloring but then I left to help my best friend move her crafting stuff into a new room (had a blast organizing all her stuff and discovered that she did have room for more 12 x 12 paper, we love paper).  I came back today, after finding my paint palette that I couldn't find yesterday, and added some more vibrant water colors after I die cut the star shape.    So I had this star shape and this white card and what in the world was I going to do with them.  So I decided to take a break.  I was reading a blog post and they mentioned washi tape.  WASHI TAPE?  Jackpot!! I looked over at my small washi tape organizer on my desk and found some tape that would work perfectly.  Two strips of aqua paper rounded out the card.

Now I have my assignment from day 2 and I can't wait to get started!  Thanks for stopping by!
