Nathalie Kalbach, mixed media artist extraordinaire, has designed several stamp sets for Stampendous and this week, we’re celebrating her newest designs.  For the January release this year, Nat designed 3 new and innovative mixed media sets that include a 2-sided foam stamp, a cling rubber stamp and a coordinating stencil, all of which create great options for the paper crafter and mixed media artist.  

For my project today, I’ve used Urban Scribble.  I love cityscapes and this one is no exception.  I couldn’t wait to stamp it on a mini canvas and watercolor the image with bright, happy colors!

Here’s what I used for this canvas:

StāzOn™ Jet Black Ink Pad by Tsukineko®/Imagine Crafts®
Crayola® Watercolor Set
Canvas Board
Ikea Frame

Here’s what I did for this canvas:

Stamp image with black ink onto canvas board.
Paint image with watercolors.
Allow to dry and add to frame.

Here's a list of my teammates that are playing along today:  

We are mixing it up for three commenters during the hop. Each prize package includes all three of Nathalie Kalbach’s Foam, Cling Rubber and Stencil Stamp sets. But WAIT! This is open to everyone!

Comment on each blog post at Stampendous and that of each designer’s post on the hop this week. We’ll announce winners on Monday May 2nd.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I'll have another project to share with you tomorrow so please stop back by for a look.  See you then!
