Happy Thursday and hurray the weekend is almost here!  Yeah!  The good news here in the Black Hills also is that the weather is warming up a little for the goes from one extreme to the other all in the same week...-24 to 44 degrees!  crazy....never dull though.
I just have a quick post today as my son from Minneapolis is visiting today and I want to make a nice meal and hang with him and his lovely girlfriend.  They are so great together!
I just wanted to show you two cards I made for the Thursday Tips and Tutorials over at Skipping Stones Design blog.  They are very very quick and simple, but that is what the post is all about....I created a masterboard by covering a sheet of watercolor paper with a soft wash of color. I also added a generous spray of glimmer mist to the finished piece while still wet.  Let it dry completely.

I then Stamped several images on the paper from my favorite SSD sets in black Momento ink, and embossed with clear EP.

From there I created the two following cards, and put the paper away for a future quick card where I may need an already "colored" image.  These are the two cards I made, from two of the images I stamped.

For a more detailed tutorial you can check it out at the Skipping Stones blog.  While there go to the store and do a little shopping for some of the pretty stamps I used today.....and create your own masterboard for future quick card creations!
Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by!   Tammie
