Have a wonderful day!

Instant Camera Card

watercolor-instant-camera

I got this cute little stamp set in my Christmas stocking. Just adorable. I’m sure it struck a note with Offspring3 (my personal Santa), we were talking about possibly purchasing an instant camera (for a project I want to do) while we decorated the Christmas tree a few weeks ago.

(I decided the cost of the film would be too great…convenient, but too expensive. I can do the project with my regular camera & printer, it will just take a little longer.)

ANYWAY…I stamped the cameras and watercolored them with the ZIG pens/markers and an aqua brush.

Supplies: Stamps – Altenew, paper – Canson watercolor, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Gray, inks – VersaFine Onyx Black, ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers (all 12 colors in my 12 color set), embossing powder – Ranger Liquid Platinum.
