Art Impressions Cards

Recently we had Sandy Allnock teach her classes at Impressive Ideas
at it got me started again on the Art Impressions Watercolor Stamps. 
I bought my first wood mounted Watercolor Stamps about 
10 years agoand I've been hooked ever since!

I can't draw so these stamps are ideal for me to get a 
watercolored look.  I usually copy the ideas off the package 
and find that works for me.  I need an image to start my 
stamping and find that there are also great ideas on Pinterest.  
Get some stamps and give it a try!
