Stamp This With Stampendous and Staedtler

Todays card is a combination of Stampendous stamps and STAEDTLER Ergo Soft Aquarell watercolor pencils. The stamp is Hot Air Trio, it was stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with black embossing powder.  It was then colored with STAEDTLER Ergo Soft Auarell pencils.  I have been using STAEDTLER watercolor pencils for 16 years now and have always loved them!! The sentiment is from the  Soaring Sentiments Perfectly Clear set.

Hop on over to the other designers blogs to see what they have created with Stampendous stamps and STAEDTLER!  Leave comments for a chance to win prize packs!

How pretty. The colors are wonderful. I've been so focused on the balloon set that I have overlooked all the great sentiments in this set.
