Today is the day. I am staging a Stamping Comeback! Or at least I'm going to try. I miss stamping!! I have this big, beautiful stamp room and oodles of stamps and supplies and THEY JUST SIT THERE!! Getting dusty!! IT'S A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY!!!!

So I did some more watercoloring...

I love to add watercolor to a piece of paper and see what happens. I just used my Neenah paper. I know, I know. I really need to get some watercolor paper. But Neenah works surprisingly well! It didn't even pill up. But it does get all ripply - perhaps watercolor paper is more stiff and would remain more flat? Once this particular piece dried, I decided to make a starry scene out of it. Why? I'm not sure. It looks absolutely nothing like a night sky! LOL! Oh well. Picture yourself deep in some amazing astronomy photo of a nebula or something...

I was happy to play with my new Constellation Star from Hero Arts. I embossed it in Ranger's Enchanted Gold EP - it's light gold and sparkly! I used the same EP on Hero's You're a Star message.

Finally, a bit of washi and some sequins (I believe from an old Studio Calico kit?) to finish it off.

Last night when I had my paints out, I created a whole bunch of watercolored panels to use on cards. So the first week of my Official Comeback may also be Watercolor Week. I hope you don't mind.

I mentioned my Official Comeback on Facebook, and my friend Dina said I reminded her of this song. I've decided it's my new theme song. My daughter and I were just jamming to it as we were getting crafty. But as LL Cool J says - don't call it a comeback, I've been here for years...

And I promise not to knock you out. Except, perhaps, with my creative genius. HA HA HA!!
