I would like to thank Debbie and all the team over at Newton’s Nook – Inky Paws Challlenge for selecting my card as her vafourite! I really appreciated her kind and supportive comments.
Helen F. shows off her amazing water coloring skills behind the snoozing critters from the Porch Swing Friends stamp set. She continues the plaid from the background by paper-piecing the blanket on the swing! A brilliant idea!
Hello and welcome
Today I’m back with a new challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday. Tristan is host for this fortnight’s Watercooler Wednesday Challenge: All About Occasions.
My card features this lovely image from Newton’s Nook – Porch Swing Friends! I fell in love with this stamp as soon as I saw it!!
I started by stamping the image and copic colouring. For fun I also did some paper piecing for the throw and cushions. This also gave me the opportunity to give my card some added dimension with all the smaller elements layered up!
As I felt it needed a background, I decided mine was on the edge of a garden. So I again used copics to create some trees, shrubs and flowers and MFT – Small Brick Wall Stencil for a partial brick wall.
Finally, I added some AI – Foliage stamps, using Distress Ink, for some added details for the garden.
The panel was added to some brown card then to the card front covered in DP using fun foam.
The sentiment is from the same set.
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.
Stay safe in these difficult times and have a good day
