Hello and welcome

Today it’s time for the next challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday!  As October has 5 Wednesday’s, this week it is an “Anything Goes” Challenge.  So no excuses not to join in the fun this week!
No photo description available.

This week, I had fun playing with Penny Black – Magnolia SSS – Believe stamp.  It was interesting to watch the flower come to life as it was restamped with Picked Raspberry and Black Soot Distress Inks.

After adding ink, the stamp was lightly misted with water and stamped on watercolour paper.  The ink is then blended out with a brush. This is repeated until the image is clear and as bold as you wanted.

Extra details were then added with a brush, (especially in the flower centres)

Splatters of black and pink finished the panel.

Altnew – Label Love sentiment was stamped in black ink.

The panel was then added to the card front with strips of black card on each side.

I loved this gorgeous image and the way it came to life.  I hope you do too.

Don’t forget to head over to our blog to check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of our Design Team.

I look forward to seeing what you create this week!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

Have a great day

Cheers

Helen

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.
