WWC160 – Heidi’s Feminine” Anything Goes” Challenge

P1070128

Hello again and welcome to this week’s great new challenge over at  Watercooler Wednesday.  Heidi is hosting the Feminine “Anything Goes” Challenge 160.

My inspiration for this technique came from the Altnew Blog post by Dana G Crafts

I started by stamping  Wplus9 – Kind Soul flowers in Versafine Onyx Black Ink on Watercolour paper.  I then coloured them with Distress Inks and finished by bringing the colours down from the flowers as thought the colours were dripping down, as well as creating a light halo above them. Finally I added a spray of  Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist – Bubbles to give some shimmer. (So pretty IRL).

The Simply Dies — Scripty Hello was double cut from black cardstock and given a coat of Wink of Stella Black.

To finish, I added some sequins and mounted the panel on coloured card. I think  the addition of these layers and die cut sentiment enhance the basic one layer main panel without overshadowing it, and helps bring the eye’s focus back to the pretty flowers.

I was really pleased with the way it turned out and how easily it came together.  It was just perfect for a special friend on her birthday.

I appreciate your visit and please be sure to check out all the wonderful creations from the rest of the team on our blog.

We’re looking forward to seeing what you create this week.

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
