These little fun goodies were for my unit meeting today. I made up a purse design & let each lady make their own with their twist on colors/stamps. And the card is for my swap with them. I chalked the image on the right...it looks better IRL...the vineyard berry on left really pops with the flower colors. And the purse...well, I will have to take some pix of later...with my daughters to share better idea of how it turned out.

Do you need a copywright or just your name? What it does is protect your art from being stolen or claimed by another. So just my name or a slogan/logo should be fine eh?
I guess from what I read...you make a watermark. save it as a black/white image. When you drag it onto your image to mark...that is where you change it to an emobssed & light image...to do the trick. Why can't you have it transparent before?
I see it on all sorts of artwork images....and think I need one now. But, how do you make it? I found a tutorial & made one. But it appears you copy & paste it onto your image....and then lighten it...right? Why can't it just be lightened before? Or does it have to do with it being transparent once on the image? Who knows. Here is a pix of a plate I painted and a few watermarks I "made".

Here are a few cards I managed to make the past few days. The redish background paper was made by using versamark to stamp the large flower on glossy cardstock & they I used a brayer to apply Vineyard Berry ink...and stamped ontop with a the thin flower & vineyard berry ink.

I fibbed a bit & didn't do a page this month. Instead a little pillow box & mini card to go with. Might be for a loved one, a teacher, child...special friend. The stamp of the month for January is all about hearts & little words....so I had to use it. That's why next month I'll not have the ladies stamp LOVE on the page...unless they really want to ;)!
I ended up adding glitter to the pillow box to dress it up a bit...
