I want to say a huge thank you to SSS Monday Challenge for selecting my card for a Designer Spotlight award!! I was surprised and thrilled!!

Hello and welcome

On this card I heat embossed the MFT – Wavy Coloring Book Background stamp in white.

I then smooched the a mix of blues and green Distress inks sprayed with Pearlised water to give it a shine. I also used a little watered down white paint. Each layer was heat dried before adding more colour till I was happy with the result. It’s amazing the variety of colour you achieve this way.

The sentiment is MFT – Celebrations dies (4 layers) and Mama Elephant layered over a vellum semi-circle.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments and will be sure to check out your blog.

I hope all is going well for you all! Stay safe!

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.
