I would like to thank everyone over at The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge for selecting my card in the Top 3! Thank you so much, I am really honoured.
Hello and welcome
As usual, we are sponsored by the awesome
Prize – a $20 voucher!
Today I decided to use a piece of coloured card as I wanted a base colour as an extra shade for my flowers. However, I wasn’t sure how it would take water.
I started with my PB – Spontaneous Joy stamp in my Misti. Using Distress Ink – Wilted Violet marker, I added strokes of colour onto the flower image. I then used the old ‘huffing’ technique (where you huff onto the stamp and your warm breathe reactivates the ink) before stamping.
I continued slowly building up the images, adding a little Seedless Preserves at the base of he flowers and in the centres and a very tiny amount of black in the middle of the centres.
Once I felt I had a fairly good impression, I used a damp brush to swipe over the colours for a little blending, sometimes adding a little more Seedless Preserves where needed to even out the images.
I was pleased with the way it turned out as the colours worked together so well. I’m not sure the photo shows the colour as pretty as it is IRL! 😦
I finished by adding a border of darker purple and the sentiment from PB – Heartfelt stamp set.
