Thinking of You

This card was loads of fun to make, incorporating some of my favourite techniques - watercolouring, sponging and distressing.

The sentiment was stamped twice to make it a bit darker and the bird and two bullrushes were stamped on watercolour paper, cut out and stuck on over the very vanilla image for dimension. I also "shabbied" the lace by sponging over patches of it.

Materials used:
  • stamps - Every Moment, French Foliage, Silhouette Sentiments
  • card - crumb cake, very vanilla, marina mist, watercolour paper, Elegant Soiree DSP
  • inks & markers - soft suede, pear pizzazz, crumb cake, Baja breeze, marina mist, so saffron, more mustard
  • other - lace, dimensionals, nestabilities die, aquapainter
Hope you get the chance to play with some of your favs today! Thanks for stopping by.
