:: let me count the ways ::

New Issue Mondays at Paper Issues just make me giddy (and I'm extra giddy because we are on Spring Break)!

Our current issue, 
Painting by the Numbers, is sponsored by Waffle Flower Crafts and full of possibilities!!

<<<<<<<< WFC sent DT members these awesome number stamps! I love how versatile these stamps are! I have several project ideas rolling around in my head,  and I am certain that I will use them over and over again.  When you hop over to the Paper Issues blog you will be able to see how several design team members used these number stamps on their projects.  Here is a look at what I came up with for this project:

I'm using patterned papers from Webster's Pages & Pinkfresh Studio, StazOn ink and and some watercolors that I purchased at Michaels.  I stamped numbers randomly all over the pink paper -- every which way.  Then I used my watercolors and filled in the holes.  :-)  I decided that I wanted a little more texture so I stamped some more numbers on white card stock, painted them in, cut them out, and then popped them up!

As always, you can link up your projects (new or old) and you could win this same versatile stamp set! Here are a few suggested link up ideas: use numbers (embellishments, stickers, rulers, patterned paper, etc.), mixed media (watercolor, gelatos, inks), stamping, St. Patrick's Day, use Waffle Flower Crafts products.
