The Stamp Review Crew: Work of Art Edition

This year sure is flying by. Can you believe it's the beginning of October already?!  That also means it's time for a new edition of The Stamp Review Crew! Work of Art is by far my favorite set out of the 2014-2015 catalog.  There are so many creative ideas out there for this set that it is hard for me to think of something new and innovative. But I love to use Work of Art for backgrounds that look watercolored, so I went that direction!  

I LOVE using this set to make backgrounds. For this one, I stamped all of my images from Work of Art on my largest clear block, and then spritzed it with water. I then carefully placed my Shimmery White cardstock on top of the block and pressed it into the color. For my leaves, I stamped them in one color, and then used the smallest blotchy stamp from Work of Art to add additional colors to each one before cutting them out. This is such a great set for "coloring" images without spending a lot of time using markers!
