WWC172 – Anything Goes Challenge



Hello and welcome to our next Watercooler Wednesday – Anything Goes – Challenge. is our wonderful host this week.

My card features this beautiful Penny Black -Slapstick – Gentle Whisper stamp.  I just love this beautiful image and it makes it so easy to colour.

This time I coloured the image with Distress ink and sprayed it very lightly with water before stamping on watercolour paper.  It is then only a matter of working with water and a brush to pull the colour out to form the flowers and leaves.  Where I felt it needed a bit more colour, I added it with a brush.

After adding a few black splatters, I added the Hero Arts wood block  stamp – Poetic Prints – Chinese Happiness Wish in black ink. It was finished with a black card cut from My Favorite Things – Die Stitched Basic Edges.

Thanks so much for stopping in.  Please remember to check out the wonderful work on our blog.

I hope you can join in our challenge this week.

P1070458Welcome again

My card tonight features one of my favourite Altnew stamp sets – Magnolias For Her, which I Distress water coloured before fussy cutting the images.

On the square background panel, I smooshed some Distress Ink and gold ink along with some splatters towards the centre and adding it to the card front. I then added the gold Spellbinders – Captivating Squares die cut on the diagonal.

Using a piece of scrap vellum, I  roughly traced  and cut out the outline of the flower.  After folding is in half I attached it behind the flower spray and added the whole piece to the corner of the die cut.P1070459

To finish, I gold embossed the sentiment from Altnew’s  – Just Because set.

I was pleased with the way it worked out.
