Don't you just love Tim's blueprint stamps - such detail and a fantastic idea to colour each "blade" a different bright colour. Thank you for sharing.

I love how you used colour to just make the stamp pop with the watercolouring and the spattering. Thank you for sharing this great card.

You have SUCH a knack for color, Cheiron! This is so clever and fun, and I think a really different and unexpected way to use those stamps. Love the rainbow, and how smart to add the corresponding color flicks around the fan, too. Really does look like the colors are being flung!

Pamela Palm

A rainbow look with the vintage stamps? Awesome!

Jennifer Durand

I never would have thought to use bright colors, but what a great idea! It's like a whole new fresh look for the Inventor series. And as someone who works at the US Patent & Trademark Office, I am partial to the inventor series.

Vicki in MD - beautiful work - I love the rainbow you have created (as many others have already mentioned) and thanks for the reminder to let this dry completely before doing more with it. Something this impatient crafter often overlooks.

Barbara Bass

I watched Tim on You Tube as he shared a glimpse of the various projects. All I could say was “Wow”! Your piece is gorgeous.

Joey Barnes

I keep forgetting about flicking color over the edges. And a good idea to mask off the center to preserve the vibrancy if the color. Thanks for sharing.

I’ll have to pick up some distress watercolor paper, makes the colors really pop!


Very cool
